8th Grade Student & Parent Information Nights with HBUHSD

8th Grade Student and Parent Informational Nights
The Huntington Beach Union High School District (HBUHSD) schools are beginning preparations to enroll 8th grade students by offering 8th grade parent and student information nights to assist families in making choices about classes and programs for the 9th grade year. Parent meetings are designed to help the students make knowledgeable and realistic decisions in educational planning for high school and post‐secondary options. With increased competition for admission into colleges, the HBUHSD strives to provide students and parents with accurate, current information that helps families make choices to ensure student success in high school and beyond.
Both students and parents are encouraged to review the online Planning Guide for Students and Parents (www.hbuhsd.edu, under Student Services) and each school website to help select an appropriate high school program and to see what each school uniquely offers. By April, the high school guidance staff will go to the feeder schools to assist 8th grade students in course selection. Parent information nights (see
schedule on the next page) will give families an opportunity to ask questions about the pre‐registration process and school programs. School guidance staff and teachers will use multiple measures to help determine student placement that will include standardized test scores, teacher comments, and student achievement (grades) for specific class placement. Please feel free to attend and Parent Night at any HBUHSD site.
Aeries Portal Account Information Will Be Mailed Out
Aeries is HBUHSD’s Student Information Systems. All parents need to create a high school Aeries parent account in order to access grades and other important student information. If you have a middle school Aeries account, you will still need to create a new High School Aeries account.  You will need:
  • Your new HBUHSD Student ID Number
  • Your HBUHSD Verification Code or VPC
  • Primary telephone number*
  • A personal email address: (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.)
*The primary telephone number is the number attached to the student record. If you have trouble creating your Aeries account, try using an older phone number of a landline number. If the phone number does not work, please contact your home high school to make sure we have the correct phone number for your student.
