Course Request: Current 8th  Current 9th-11th
  
Schedule Change Process:  Students must complete a Schedule Change Request form. Please return this to the counseling office.
  • Open or double period on your schedule: See your counselor the first day of school during that period.
  • Placed in the wrong class level: Go to all classes on your schedule. Ask your teacher for a schedule change form during that class period, then drop off the completed form in the counseling office.
  • Requests to change an elective class: Beginning the 3rd day of each trimester you may drop off a completed schedule change request in the box in the front office. Due to scheduling conflicts and available space, students do not always get their requested elective. Counselors will do their best to accommodate your request and will contact you as soon as a decision has been made.
 Examples of acceptable changes:
  1. Level change: e.g. you have Spanish 1-2 on your schedule, but you need to be in Spanish 3-4
  2. Open Period: less than five classes in one trimester.
  3. Incorrect class: incorrect class, e.g. you requested Mandarin but received Spanish.
 Examples of unacceptable changes:
  1. We cannot accept requests for a specific teacher, trimester, or period (except for off roll).
  2. Required grade level courses will not be dropped.
  3. AP courses cannot be dropped.
Adding/dropping a class: Students can request to add or drop a class within the first 13 days of each trimester.
