• SCHEDULE CHANGES

    • Students making a schedule change after the schedules have been distributed must meet the  following guidelines and must demonstrate a compelling educational need.

    • The following are acceptable reasons for schedule review and possible changes:

      • To correct inappropriate class placement.

      • To correct scheduling omissions or an incorrect program.

      • To increase the number of academic classes.

      • To fulfill district and/or state graduation requirements.

      • To fulfill district and/or summer school requirements.

    • The following are not acceptable reasons for schedule changes:

      • Teacher preference.
      • Personal convenience of the student, such as having classes or lunch with a friend, not having PE first period, having classrooms closer together.

    • The deadline for extensive course selection changes is prior to the first day of the school year.
    • Students can request a course change in the first six-day cycle of each semester.  These requests will be reviewed by all guidance counselors and administrators and be approved based on whether the student demonstrates a compelling educational need.
    • Course level changes are made by the end of the first marking period if the student is doing poorly academically (failing or in danger of failing) and would benefit from a change in the academic level of the course (i.e, Honors to CP, CP to Academic/Modified).
    • Students who request to drop a course level, after the deadline, are handled in the following manner.     
      • Student will receive a WF on the transcript and that will be calculated in to the student’s GPA for the full credit of the course.
      • Student’s current course grade is transferred to the new course for calculation of a final grade.
    • At the end of the first semester we will allow course selection changes based on the following criteria.
      • Requests will be approved for:
        • Students who would like to replace a study hall with an elective.
        • Students who want to change a Spring elective because they did poorly (D or F) in the prerequisite elective that they have taken in the Fall.
        • Students who need to change elective choices because of scheduling error. (For example, a student has already taken the course or he or she hasn’t taken the prerequisite)
        • Seniors who need schedule adjustments in order to graduate in June.
    • Students may change course selections in order take an Independent Study.  A team of faculty and administrators review Independent Study applications in the first 10 days of each marking period.
    • Students may change course selections to include Virtual High School coursework. 
    • Students may change course selections to include dual enrollment coursework.
