Class Changes

Although the counseling department works very hard to accommodate all students schedule requests, they are aware that individuals may need to make some adjustments.

If a problem arises in a particular class, the first step is always to talk to the teacher to see if the problem can be worked out.

If more help is needed, a student can and should talk to his/her parent about these concerns, and then make an appointment to speak to the counselor.

The counselor may suggest a conference with the teacher or tutoring assistance. After an honest attempt has been made to succeed in the class, the counselor with your parent's consent may change the class to another.

However, due to class size and class balancing, no guarantees can be made regarding a change to a particular staff member's class. All changes must go through the counseling office, and all paperwork must be complete before a class change is official.

Timeline

Each semester grading period is 9 weeks long. Class changes into another new class need to be done during the first three weeks of the class. Dropping a class may be possible until mid-semester. However, no class can be dropped during the last three weeks of the semester or the student will receive an F grade.
