Scheduling Procedures

Scheduling Procedures

In January, students will attend a Course Registration Assembly to hear about new courses proposed for the next academic year, to receive the registration forms, and to 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 need to sign completed registration forms prior to the student submitting it to the counselors by the specified deadline. It is the student's individual responsibility to ensure that he has taken the requisite courses for graduation.

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. 

*Misplacement into course or course level. 

*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.
