Check Your Schedule
Check that you don't have double periods (like two 3rd hours), that you know where your classes are located, and most importantly, that you are in the correct classes based on your academic abilities.
Check your schedule through your Infinite Campus Student Account!
Check Your Credits
Are you on track with your credits?
If you are taking six courses plus a lunch, at the end of your first semester you should have three credits. At the end of the school year you should have six credits, and so on.
To stay on track for graduation without the need of summer school or online classes, you should be completing three credits a semester and six credits a year. How did you do?
Access to Your Student Accounts
Here are some helpful links and information about the accounts that you will be expected to know and use regularly as a student:
- Student Google Account (via Rapid Identity Login) - You will use a Google/Rapid Identity account to login to any computer you use in high school.
- Infinite Campus - Infinite Campus is where you can check your grades, see assignment calendars and check your credit progress.
- Google Classroom - Google Classroom is the online tool used by Gilbert Public Schools to simplify teaching and learning by connecting all the digital tools teachers use in one easy place. Most of your classes will have a Google Classroom for assignments and activities. Teachers will provide you with a code to sign up for their class at the beginning of the year. Tip: Find all your Google Classrooms at https://www.classroom.google.com.

Free/Reduced Lunch Application – for More than Just School Lunches!
Did you know that if you qualify for assistance through the National School Lunch Program (NLSP), you may be eligible to receive fee waivers for the SAT/ACT exams, some College Applications and fee reductions for AP Exams?
Free and reduced-price meals are available to families who qualify. If your family chooses to apply, please fill out a Free & Reduced Meal Application.
From the College Board:
"The College Board fee-waiver service assists qualified, economically disadvantaged students who plan to take the SAT/SAT Subject Tests/PSAT/NMSQT/AP Exams. A student must be either enrolled in, or eligible to participate in, the National School Lunch Program (NLSP) in order to receive a fee waiver. Schools participating in new federal programs such as Community Eligibility may not be able to use the NLSP criterion to identify and verify individual student fee-waiver eligibility. However, several other criteria or indicators can still be used to confirm eligibility for fee-waiver benefits."
For more information, please speak with your counselor.
