SCHEDULE CHANGE INFORMATION FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ONLY
***Schedule changes WILL NOT be made for teacher preference***
Schedule changes for first semester will run from Monday, August 8th and 9th from 8:00 to 3:00 PM and during the first 6 day cycle of the first semester.
Appointments on August 8th-9th are first come first served and will be handed out beginning at 7:30 AM. Beginning on August 10th students may come into the counseling office to pick up an appointment slip from their counselor.
For any schedule changes made beyond the first 6 days of the semester, please note our school’s withdraw policy in regard to how these changes are noted on the school’s transcript:
W – Indicates that a student attempted the class past the add/drop deadline, but withdrew prior to the 6th week of the course. No grade is recorded and there is no negative effect on the Grade Point Average. Colleges may require an explanation for a course withdrawal.
W/Fail – Indicates that the student withdrew from the course after the 6th week. This notation carries with it the same effect as an “F” grade and has a negative impact on the GPA.
The Counseling Department's goals and objectives are to provide needed services to all students and to utilize community resources in helping students solve problems, further their education, and make realistic plans for the future. This is done through individual and small group counseling. Each student should have a minimum of one counseling session during each semester, but counselors are available to students and parents as often as necessary.
