Schedule Changes/Course Drops
Course sections are filled and balanced using student course selections made in the spring as a basis for efficient administrative planning and scheduling. Course Request Change forms are sent home in June. At this time parents and students can make final adjustments to requests. While we ask that all students and parents select appropriate courses, we know that sometimes students do not succeed in all courses and the necessity to re-take a class exists. We will honor requests for a change if an error on the schedule is identified, but we must limit class changes to legitimate reasons. After schedules are complete course changes will only be considered under the following provisions:
Students should see their counselor to determine the potential outcomes should they drop a course and the impact on the grade-point average and diploma type. The following grade reporting policies will be followed when dropping a course:
Level changes, for example, from honors to regular, will be considered until five days past the first marking period. The student’s current grade will transfer forward to the new course. The principal may review and approve level changes beyond the five days.
The drop/add date for DE courses will be determined by the sponsoring college. If a student drops after the drop date, the student is responsible for the tuition fee.
