Schedule Changes


If you are thinking about asking to change your schedule at the start of the new semester, first consider this.

As per building policy, they allow 5 days into the start of the new semester for schedule changes when requested. 

In order to change your schedule you need an eligible reason. 

Such as a teacher recommendation for a different placement, a class that you aren’t qualified for or have already taken and received the credit for. You also cannot change your schedule just because you want a certain teacher, for rearranging purposes or to get a different lunch. No year long changes will be made at semester either. 

The penalty of missing this deadline is an F grade placed on your transcript for a class dropped or changed and a form sent home to be signed by your parents.

If you would like to make a schedule change request you can have a conversation with your counselor. 

To set up an appointment you can email them or the counseling secretary Robin Knutson. They also allow for walk-ins during all three lunches. 

As a reminder given by Allison Bennett (Se-Z); this semester they don’t have enough semester classes open. There is no space for lots of changes.

Cheyenne Hanshaw (Ho-Mi) gave a reminder to look on Skyward under Graduation requirements. It is more accurate than your High School and Beyond Plan. 

Making the master schedule is a lengthy process starting in January to prepare for registration. They will look at course requests and then combine them in a master schedule. It takes a whole semester to build the full schedules. 

So please consider whether or not your schedule change is really necessary.
