Where does my day start?
We start everyday in a Focus Block. For the first 2 weeks students will report to their Advisory during this time. The Advisory teacher and room number are listed on the schedule.

What if I am new to SASD?
New students to the district should have a schedule in Home Access Center. If this schedule does not represent your needs (i.e. math placement, music courses, honors courses in 8th grade) we are happy to work with you to meet your needs. Counselors will be reaching out to welcome new students to IC. If you do not have a schedule in Home access Center we will be working to create one and follow-up once completed.
