Schedule Correction Day

Friday, August 13th from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

When can I see my schedule?

  • Schedules will be available for students to view on Power School on Tuesday, August 10th.

  • If students would like to make a schedule correction, they will need to attend on Friday or make the change during the first three days of school. If you email your school counselor, you may not get a response before Friday, August 13th. The best thing is to come in on August 13th or wait until school starts.

  • Students will find their official schedule in Power School. Due to balancing class numbers, please check your schedule frequently.

  • Students who took summer school classes, please make sure those classes are not in your schedule for this year.

  • PLEASE read this information carefully!! It is very important!

  • For students that need access to PowerSchool but have forgotten their password, they may contact the HomeSupport line at 553-3003 during the hours of 7:30am-4pm M-F starting tomorrow. We will maintain this password assistance for students in PowerSchool until the HelloID system is connected to PowerSchool.

PLEASE CHECK YOUR SCHEDULE CAREFULLY!!!


  • Do I have a FULL schedule?

    • Study halls and releases will all be entered before school starts. If there is a blank in your schedule, you will be assigned study hall for sophomores and release for juniors and seniors. To gain release, students must have parent permission and no fees, fines, or detentions.

  • Am I enrolled in at least six (6) classes both semesters?

    • Some classes may have been dropped or changed due to limited enrollment and/or scheduling conflicts.

    • If you do not have 6 full classes, you will need to add a class to your schedule. Please come on Schedule Correction Day OR see your counselor on the first day of school.

GUIDELINES FOR SCHEDULE ADJUSTMENTS

The staff at Cedar Falls High School believes all students can learn and need to be in challenging and rigorous classes. Students are responsible for determining and accepting the classes for which they registered last spring. They must plan very deliberately, always keeping in mind high school requirements, post-high school plans, and individual interests.


Schedule adjustments at this point will be made for academic reasons only. Parent permission will also be required but does not guarantee a schedule adjustment.


Adjustments are limited and will be based only on the following reasons:

1. Teacher recommendation and/or request because of inappropriate placement.

2. Failure in a previously required class.

3. Credits needed for graduation.

4. Failure in class that is a prerequisite or not having the prerequisite scheduled.

5. Computer error.

6. Schedule that does not have enough classes scheduled.

7. New students to the district.

8. PSEOA students.


Adjustments will NOT be made for the following reasons:

1. Students wanting to gain release during certain periods.

2. Teacher changes.

3. If classes are full-including PE.

4. To accommodate job schedules.



Timeline for schedule adjustments:

  1. Schedule adjustments will be made on Friday, August 13th from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

  2. Please be prepared to wait.

  3. If students are unable to attend on August 13th, changes may still be made during the first three days of school.

  4. The 2021-22 Before School Schedule Correction Request Sheet must be filled out with a parent's signature. Please see the attachment above.

  5. Changes for the 2nd semester can be made after school begins unless it affects first-semester classes. Second-semester adjustments must be made by December 22nd.


Requests for reasons other than those listed above are limited to extenuating circumstances and must have administrative approval.

GUIDELINES FOR DROPPING A CLASS AFTER SCHOOL STARTS

Any student, who makes a request to drop a course AFTER school begins, must complete paperwork with the teacher, school counselor, and parent/guardian signature. Students are required to carry a minimum of six classes plus PE. Students may drop a class until the 7th week of the semester without a penalty if they still have six classes on their schedule. After the 7th week of the semester, a student dropping a course will receive a grade of “F” for the semester.

The deadline for dropping an extra class:

1st semester- October 12th

2nd semester-March 9th
