Any change the student wants to make to their elective classes will be written on the sheet and given to their counselor to make the change. (Due Friday, March 1, 2019)
The student's tentative course request(s) will involve the consideration of test scores, student's overall academic & attendance record, teacher and staff recommendations, and student-related interests.
Advanced Studies Agreement(s) need to be turned in at time of registration. *Failure to turn in the signed Advanced Studies Agreement(s) will result in the student being put on a waiting list for the course and could prevent them from being enrolled into course due to class size limitations.
Only students with their completed and signed Course Request Sheet will be permitted to register at their assigned time. All other students will need to turn in sheets to Guidance by Friday, March 1, 2019. (Otherwise, courses will be selected for you.)
Students are given only ONE opportunity to make changes to their requests.
DUE FRIDAY, MARCH 1st.
Schedule changes will be honored if one of the following criteria exists: (1) A student has passed a class in which he or she is enrolled; (2) administrative action is necessary to balance classes; or (3) a student is inappropriately placed according to level of ability or test scores.
