Online Course Selection for 18-19: February 5th - February 16th, 2018

Please reach out to current teachers with questions regarding which courses to register for next year. Remember, students will now select their own math, science and English courses. The Gunn Course Catalog and students' current teachers and counselor are a wealth of information in helping develop a balanced schedule for the upcoming school year. 

Note: Students who are NEW to PAUSD will not be able to select their courses online. Online course selection for the next year is available only to students currently in PAUSD. Students NEW to PAUSD must follow the steps below:

1.  Students who are NEW to PAUSD must first complete the PAUSD registration process. Once the registration process has been completed at the District Office, new students will be issued a pink Admit Slip.

2.  After receiving the Pink Admit slip, students NEW to PAUSD must set up an appointment with a Gunn Counselor/Counseling Staff Member to select courses for the coming school year. To set up an appointment please contact Ms. Robin Francesconi via phone (650- 354-8212) or via email (rfrancesconi@pausd.org)

Course selections made prior to June have the same priority, regardless of the date that the student meets with a Gunn Counselor/Counseling Staff Member.
