**2019-2020 Schedule Change Information**

This year we are having students/parents request a scheduling change through this online Google Form that the Counseling Team emailed to families on Monday, Aug. 12.  The Google Form will only be available to students until Friday, Aug. 16 at 3:00 p.m.  Students may submit only 1 form with up to three requests.

Please note: Not all requests can be granted due to space constraints.

Some Important Reminders:

  1. There is a priority for schedule changes. Changes are made on a first come, first serve basis and based on the following criteria:
    1. The student is a senior not scheduled in a course needed for graduation.
    2. The student has already earned credit for a course currently scheduled.
    3. The student does not meet the prerequisite requirements for a course.
    4. The student wishes to drop from an advanced core course to an on-level course of the same course.
    5. The student was dismissed from a program where approval must be granted.
    6. The student wishes to change a course previously chosen – only if there is room in a course and it will work in the student’s schedule.
  2. Due to a need for a quick turnaround, the counselors are readily accessible through email to address questions and concerns. With the high volume of students requesting a change, we will need to schedule in person meetings after the first week of school.  We appreciate your patience.
  3. Once a schedule is changed, that is the student’s final schedule.

All schedule changes should be completed before Monday, Aug. 19.
