Scheduling

Scheduling Students will meet with their school counselor to review course options for the upcoming school year.  Students and parents will receive an initial course request verification for review (the course verification will also be available through the parent portal in eSchool).  Please review carefully and any issues and concerns should be shared with the student’s school counselor.  Students and parents will receive a second course verification form before the end of June.  The selection of courses requires careful planning, serious thought and proper guidance. Since classes are established based on course requests, students are expected to remain in the courses they select. It is only in extraordinary circumstances that students should change courses after course selection is complete.

All students will receive their new schedule by mid-August.  If all the required courses and at least one elective are on the schedule, then everything is ready for the first day of school. 

Drop Policy
1. Student and parents will be notified when the 2018-2019 Add/Drop Form is available online.
2. If the course change request is made after the school year begins, the student must attend class until a determination has been made.

Course Availability
In the event of insufficient enrollment, staffing considerations, and fiscal restraints, we may cancel a course.  Additionally, courses within the same discipline, but on different levels, may be combined as a result of low enrollment.
Note:The course catalog lists all courses that are offered to students; however, not all will be offered – this is based on student choice.  Additionally, some courses may be offered in alternate years.
