Scheduling Procedures

Scheduling Procedures

On February 20, students will be shown how to view the 2019-2020 course recommendations made by their current teachers and learn about the scheduling process and deadlines.  When scheduling, a student needs to review graduation requirements and the Course Catalog.  He should consult his four-year plan and discuss proposed courses with his teachers, parents, guidance counselor, tutor, and college counselor.  He needs to note prerequisites for courses and plan to take placement tests and/or obtain the required teacher approvals.  Parents may view course recommendations and selections through their son’s portal. It is the student's individual responsibility to ensure that he has taken the requisite courses for graduation.  Counselors will be in classrooms to guide students through the course selection process on February 27th, 28th and March 1st.

Schedule Change Procedures

Schedule changes are made only when there has been careful consideration and consultation involving the guidance counselor, student, parent and teacher. The Administrator of Academics gives final approval for all schedule changes.  Students may drop a course only within the first two weeks of a course.

Acceptable for a schedule change:

*Mechanical error/computer error. 

*The passing/failing of a summer school course. 

*Failure of a sequential course.  

*Teacher-initiated change.

Unacceptable for a schedule change:

*Student wants a free period.

*Student thinks the class is too hard.

*Student wants to leave school early

*Student would carry less than six classes per semester. 

*Student thinks the class is too much work.

Any student signing up for a full year course is expected to complete the second semester of the course. This rule applies to all year-long AP classes. A student cannot drop a course after he has been enrolled in a class for more than 2 weeks. Exceptions are rare and made only by the Administrator for Academics for extreme circumstances.
