DDHS Forecasting 2021-22

Forecasting is choosing the classes you will take next year.
  We encourage families and students to look carefully at the Curriculum Guide and take the forecasting process seriously.
The Curriculum Guide lists all the courses available at David Douglas, graduation requirements, college courses available,
career pathways and more.
Please be thoughtful in selecting your classes.
  What you choose is what you will get next year.
  Counselors will review your selection and reach out if there are errors.
  If you need assistance, please contact your school counselor.
