Magnet School Plans Curriculum Sessions

Starting Thursday, students who have registered to attend Simi Valley's new magnet high school will meet with counselors to begin planning their course work for the next few years.

The school district will host a series of meetings for the more than 500 students who have already registered to attend the school, set to open on the site of Sequoia Junior High School this fall. The sessions--scheduled to run from 6 to 9 p.m. at Sequoia, 3570 E. Cochran St.--will review the courses available and help students plan their curriculum, said district administrator Judy Cannings.

The meetings will continue for the next two weeks.

Simi Valley students can still register for the school, which will specialize in technology and the performing arts. However, those registering now are being placed on a revolving waiting list, Cannings said. Once about 30 students are added to the list, another teacher can be added to the faculty, and that group of students would be accepted to the school.

About 680 students are expected to attend the school in the fall, while future enrollment is expected to eventually grow to 1,200 students after grades 11 and 12 are added for the 1997-1998 school year.

For information, contact Cannings at (805) 520-6585.
