Course Changes:

Thank you for submitting your Course Request forms to select your classes for next year. The school bases its course sections and class size counts on the number of requests received for each course. Therefore, it is imperative that your course requests demonstrate a commitment to the classes you chose. 

If you or your child are discussing a potential class change, please contact your counselor as soon as possible. Once sections are established by administration in spring, movement to other classes may be limited or impossible to avoid overcrowding in a particular class. Schedule change requests should be finalized prior to May 29th.  We highly encourage any course add/drops to occur prior to summer break. 

Counselors will not be available over summer, so any schedule change requests received after May 29th will not be reviewed until Tuesday, August 6th. Schedule changes will be completed on a drop-in basis beginning on Tuesday, August 6th.  Please understand that schedule changes will only be made for academic reasons, and not to accommodate teacher preferences.
