Course Request Changes for 2015-2016

All course request changes for 2015-2016 are due no later than Friday, April 24, 2015. Families should have received a letter with the course request list by mail. If you have questions or concerns, contact your student's counselor. Course request changes initiated by students will not be allowed after this date or at the beginning of the fall semester of 2015-16.

Please note the following regarding your student’s course requests:

  • Enrollment in Journalism, Leadership, Publications, and Service Commission require a selection process as space is limited. Final decisions on these courses have not been made. Students may receive their alternative course choice as a class once the selection process is finalized.

  • Students being recommended for support classes will be contacted by your student’s counselor to make adjustments to the course requests.

  • Mathematics and world language placements may change based on final grades.

  • Based on enrollment, staffing constraints, and master schedule limitations, the counseling staff may need to make changes to students’ course requests before the start of the school year.

  • Requests for class period or teacher requests cannot be honored.

  • If your student has an IEP, please contact the IEP case manager if you have questions.

Finalized student schedules for 2015-2016 will be available on our registration days. Registration day information will be posted on the school website this summer.
