Students who have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) have been assigned a case manager. If you have any questions regarding your student’s IEP, please contact the Special Services Department at the high school.

Schedule Change and Course Drops
Students are expected to attend and complete all scheduled courses. Every effort is made to enroll students in their first choice of elective courses, using alternates when necessary. Course offerings are based on student forecasting requests. Some courses may not be offered due to low student enrollment or other circumstances. It is important that students carefully select elective courses.

Schedules will be distributed prior to the beginning of each semester. Schedules will not be changed for teacher or period preference. Student schedule changes will only be honored if a student is misplaced. Schedule changes must be made within the first five days of the semester.

If a course is dropped after the first ten days of the semester, the student will receive an F for the course on their permanent high school transcript.

Open Periods
Students should be enrolled in five classes each term. The only exceptions are for seniors who are on track to graduate and have received counselor approval and parental written permission. During first and fifth period only, students may have an open period if they are completing work experience credits or have courses in other district buildings. Students must be in designated areas or off campus during their open period. Any exceptions must be approved by an administrator.
