You can now view your schedule for next year in Skyward. To view your schedule, click on the tab for “Schedule” and then click on “Future”. Please check to make sure you are in your core classes (Math, Science, English and Social Studies). If you have one of the below issues, please email your counselor and let them know what the problem is.
Here are some examples of common scheduling issues:
- I am missing this class _______________________________.
- I am in the wrong level of my class (ex. not in honors, wrong level of language)
- I have already taken and passed___________________________. I would like to take _______________________instead.
Due to the current circumstances and since we can’t call you in to discuss your schedule in detail, please be specific when you email us your change(s). Also, at this time, we are focusing on fixing 1st semester issues. Please check your schedule carefully and continue to check it throughout the summer. Please also keep checking your email! This is our main way to contact you if there are any issues with your schedules! Schedules can change due to balancing classes and other factors so please continue to monitor your schedule for the most up-to-date version. You will NOT be able to make any changes after we return to school in the fall!!
For all students interested in athletics next year, there has been a new ruling regarding physical exams. The IHSAA has decided that this year’s physical exams will not expire until the end of the 2020-2021 school year. You will still need to complete your code of conduct and the concussion/head injury forms, but you do NOT need a new physical exam if you had one this year. For those who did not submit a physical exam this year, you will need a new exam before you can participate in any activities.
Athletic coaches are planning for resumption of activities, but the date is floating due to COVID. Our best guess is after June 30, but there is a chance that June 14 will be the date. Stay tuned.

Students, if you are having trouble with your school laptop, you are welcome to email your school computer support at; GHS_TRC@goshenschools.org (Notice there is an underscore after GCS, that is not a blank space.) If you are having trouble with a lesson, please contact your teacher. Contact GHS_TRC@goshenschools.org for things like; it will not power on, the charger is not working, the screen does not work, a computer program will not open (like Chrome or Word), sound or mic not working, things like that.
- PLEASE try to do a full power off, wait at least a minute, then power back on, to see if that fixes the issue. That truly can fix a multitude of issues.
- Please include your full name and email address we can reply to.
- Please describe in detail the issue. Please don’t just say it does not work.
- If there is a pop up message what exactly does it say?
- If you can use the snipping tool to take screen shots of error messages that is very helpful. Just search for the word snip and you should find that.
Please email Jamie Lehman at email@example.com where you would like your final transcript sent to for the college/university choice in the Fall.
