Arena Scheduling

  • CISD utilizes a scheduling system for students called Arena Scheduling. This system, accessible from Skyward’s Student Access, allows our high school and senior high students to create their own schedule, similar to systems used in college. To participate in Arena Scheduling, students enter course requests. After the requests have been reviewed by the counselors, a time is set up where students create their own schedule (within Student Access) from their requested courses. This allows students to have more control over their schedule, and they will know their unofficial schedule by the end of the current school year. Official schedules will be available sometime in August prior to the beginning of the next school year.

    Students who have questions about the scheduling process should contact their counselor.

    For more information, please review the video, timeline, and Frequently Asked Questions below, or contact your counselor directly.
