    4-Year Planning
    In the spring, 9th graders will receive an academic presentation that highlights post secondary options, high school graduation requirements, university entry requirements, and KHS class offerings. Students will formulate a basic 4-year plan for graduation from high school and entry to their post secondary choice. This plan will be revised every school year during registration.
