Course or Timetable Changes & Process

Students are encouraged to remain committed to their course selection. But, sometimes changes need to be made.
Students with issues regarding their timetable or course registration must see a guidance counselor as soon as possible and if needing to withdraw from a course, must see their guidance counselor prior to the “Course Drop Deadline” - see Student Services for specific dates.

Students are expected to continue attending all courses, including those they wish to drop, until the course withdrawal process is complete. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure the withdrawal process is complete. Student transcripts will reflect any failing grades unless a student has properly with-drawn from a course and followed the process by the assigned deadline.

In very rare occasions administration may deem a student’s situation to warrant an exception and after significant discussion with the student, parents/guardians, teachers, and guidance counselor, administration may forgo the course drop process and deadline.

Course selection changes based on “teacher preference” are not considered. We try to ensure students have access to needed courses while keeping class sizes balanced. All our teachers are certified professionals.
