Just a reminder as we begin Semester 2; any changes to student schedules after the start of the second semester will only be considered for the following reasons:


· A data or statistical error in the schedule, i.e., two subjects in one period, no lunch, wrong grade level for English, etc.

· To meet graduation requirements or mandated program requirements.

· If student failed with scheduled teacher in the previous year and another teacher is available. Where necessary, such changes will be made at counselor discretion, and only after extensive review of the circumstances.

· Improper program/level placement, i.e., student is not in the course(s) as indicated on the course request form.


In all cases, except a clerical or data error, parental permission or parental awareness is necessary in writing before any change can be made. No course may be dropped after the first interim report is issued. Students may not transfer out of any class after four (4) weeks from the beginning of the semester course and after nine (9) weeks from the beginning of a full year course.
