Schedule Change Policy 2019-20

Schedule changes, meaning dropping and adding new courses, are allowed during the first week of a semester. For the first semester, beginning on Tuesday, September 3, a student may drop or add a new class until Tuesday, September 10. After September 10, a change in course level or a new seminar will be the only option allowed until September 30. (Only one seminar per semester is allowed for credit.) After September 30, a student may not make any schedule changes. In most cases, any change will be recorded as an Early Withdrawal (equivalent to an “E”) on the student’s transcript. The policy for the second semester will follow the first semester. The first five days will allow dropping and adding of new classes. A level change and a new seminar will be allowed through week four. There are no schedule changes after week four. For concerns beyond this date, please contact your child’s counselor directly. In addition, please understand that we may be unable to honor specific teacher requests, specific seminar hours, or lunch requests. We work hard to maintain an equitable class size in order to provide the best learning environment for all students.

A Note to Parents 
The counselors would like to remind parents and students that we are here to advocate for the students and their needs. We would like to encourage parents to:

  • Contact the individual teachers first with concerns about assignments, grades, or student progress.
  • Ask teachers for specific feedback and to offer specific recommendations/suggestions for improving academic achievement in their classes.
  • Contact counselors if grade concerns are not resolved.
  • Seek additional help from teachers before or after school…consult teachers to make appointments
  • Contact counselors if/when questions arise.
