Schedule Change and Drop Guidelines

  • General scheduling considerations
    1. In order to fulfill all graduation requirements within four years, students are encouraged to enroll in six classes each semester.

    2. One credit of teacher's assistant (TA) or office aide may be earned in grades 9-12, and only one TA or office aide position may be held per semester.

    3. Late arrival/early dismissal is granted to students who meet specific requirements. A late arrival/early dismissal form can be obtained in the counseling office. Students with late arrival/early dismissal may not be on campus during their late arrival/early dismissal.

    4. Students who have failed a class need to meet with their counselor to discuss credit retrieval or summer school options (available for a fee) in order to stay on track for graduation.

    5. The Course Description Book is a wealth of information to help students choose courses based on their future education and career goals. During registration students should carefully read course descriptions when choosing their alternate courses since most students will end up with at least one of their alternates.

    Class changes
    Student requests for valid class changes will only be considered for the first three days of each semester. To download a schedule change request form, click on the following: Schedule Change Request Form with Parent Signature. Please note that once course and alternate course selections are set, schedule changes may only be considered if a student:

    • Is missing a graduation requirement - Priority is given to juniors and seniors.
    • Is misplaced in a sequential class (example - in Art 2 but did not pass Art 1).
    • Is completely missing a class or period in his/her schedule.
    • Request is warranted by counselor and/or administrator.

    Course drops
    After the first 10 days of the semester, students may request to drop a class to TA for no credit until the tenth week. Students failing at the time of a drop will receive an “F” on their transcript. Students passing at the time of a drop will receive no credit and a “W” on their transcript. Students may not drop classes after the tenth week of each semester.
