Schedule changes that include the exchange of one course for another or changing the level of a course will be considered through August 20, 2021. During the first tive days of a semester course and first 10 days of a yearlong course, studens may drop an elective course for a study hall. Students must be on track to graduate in order to exercise this option. Students should review the offerings in this handbook carefully before choosing electives for the 2020-2021 school year as changes to student schedules after August 20, 2021, will only be considered for the following reasons:
1. A data or statistical error in the schedule, i.e. two subjects in one period, no lunch, wrong grade level for English, etc.
2. To meet graduation requirements or mandated program requirements.
3. If student failed with scheduled teacher in the previous year and another teacher is available. Where necessary, such changes will be made at counselor discretion, and only after extensive review of the circumstances.
4. Improper program/level placement, i.e. student is not in the course(s) as indicated on the course selection/parent verification form.
In all cases except clerical or data error, written parental permission is necessary before any change can be made.
All schedule changes made after August 20, 2021, are subject to administrative approval. Students withdrawing with administrative permission, will receive the following designations on report cards and transcripts:
W – Withdraw Passing – No Credit. Students who withdraw from a subject after the deadline will be assigned a “W” if they are passing the course at the time of withdrawal.
WF – Withdraw Failing – No Credit. Students who withdraw from a subject after the deadline will be assigned a “WF” if they are failing the course at the time of withdrawal.
