Student Class Schedules

Our school counselors will be reviewing the student schedules over the next few weeks. Once this review is complete, a final class schedule will be visible in PowerSchool. As a reminder, schedules are based upon requests/alternate requests students selected last Spring in Class Choice.

Changes to class schedules are not being taken at this time. Schedule changes are limited. Changes will be considered for the following reasons only:
• Schedule change is needed to meet graduation requirements.
• The schedule has an error (class period with no course, duplicate course listed, does not meet prerequisite, etc.).
• Student requests to move in/out of AP/CP/Honors course.

Class Choice, the platform used to request courses, contains credit information after semester 1 of the 2021-2022 school year. It has not been updated to include semester 2 credits. Please keep this in mind if you are reviewing that platform. This will be updated in August.
