Key information for counselors supporting online students.
School counselors play a critical role in supporting students taking online courses. NSO will make every attempt to make important information available in as simple and comprehensive way possible so that counselors can provide good information, guidance in decisions, and data for reporting.
Genius Student Information System
The Genius SIS provides an integrated system for registration, communication, progress tracking and grade reporting. It replaces several more cumbersome processes, while still allowing for individualized implementations to follow school procedures.
The primary functions are outlined in the Counselor Instruction Guides, which can be downloaded below. The steps to the Registration process for students can be found on the Registration pages, starting at Registration Overview.
If you have questions about courses or registration processes, please do not hesitate to contact Northern Star Online staff.
