Hello from Principal Dinse

Hello Canby students and families!

Welcome to our academic planning guide for school year 2021-2022. Last year was crazy! The pandemic closure, wildfires, ice storm... It was a year like no other and we hope it's all behind us. There were many lessons learned and we will take the positive impacts of the closure to help us strengthen our institution and provide a better experience for all. It's with great enthusiasm that we look forward to the return to school and, we hope, normalcy.

We are excited to present to you this guide to our class offerings and programs. While we made a lot of adjustments last year to meet the needs of our students, we are planning to offer classes in 2021-22 that will address the interests of our students, while preparing them for future success in college and careers. There are new courses to consider and we plan to keep online options available to better meet your needs.

Of course, the key to having new classes and a strong schedule is you! Take some time to explore this guide, especially the new courses below. Sign-up for classes that appeal to you and this will help us build programs that better suit your desires and needs. If you have questions, ask your counselor.

Go Cougars!

Greg Dinse, Principal


This Planning Guide is designed to aid students in making a wise selection of courses from the offerings at Canby High School. Study this guide carefully. In making course selections, students and parents should keep in mind the following:

  1. Each course being offered are dependent on enrollment and budget. If an insufficient number of students request a course or funding for staffing is not sufficient, it will not be available.
  2. Courses are divided into two types: required and elective. Required courses are those that a student must pass to satisfy State of Oregon and Canby School District requirements. Elective courses are designed to build skills in areas of study that meet the student's needs for career and college readiness, as well as the pursuit of individual interests.
  3. English and math placement is based on teacher recommendation, present classroom work, past performance, test scores, and other criteria related to the student's ability, potential, and post-secondary goals.
  4. Courses offered in this guide are subject to change.
