NEW MOODLE SITE IS IN PROGRESS of CONSTRUCTION: 
We are currently rearranging the online record-keeping system so that students can access their records online at any time.  This will take many months to effect the change-over because it will entail hundreds of hours to facilitate it.  When the change-over is completed a general email will be sent out informing students of the completion of the change-over and instructions concerning how to register for their User Name and ID so they can access their records in the new record-keeping system.

Currently, all new students from September 19, 2013 forward are on the new moodle system except for a few which asked for and were granted a Special Course of Study.
