Schedule Change Policy
DROP AND ADD POLICY
The high school administration encourages parents, counselors, and classroom teachers to become active participants in course selections. We feel all these groups should provide the student with information so that he/she will make an informed decision. It is important to state to the parents of our students that the course selections by our students determine much of our teacher assignments and budget decisions each year. It is for these reasons we wish to stress to our students and their parents the necessity to consider all selections final once the schedule is set in late May.
Per the High School Schedule Change Policy, counselors cannot make schedule changes for the following reasons:
• Student has already been granted one schedule change
• Class size decreases below the district minimum standard
• Student wishes to move into a section of the same course that is larger in size than the one they are leaving
• Schedule Change Request Form is not signed (or confirmed) by parent and student
• Request is made after the first week of the trimester
A student will only be allowed ONE (1) schedule change per year and the request form must be signed by a parent.

Each class will have a class meeting where course selection materials will be distributed (see schedule below). Students are to review the materials with their parents, complete the course selection sheet and bring the completed sheet with parent signature to their assigned appointment time with their counselor.
Students will receive their assigned appointment times at their respective class meetings. Appointments will be noted on the top of each student's course selection sheet, and this sheet serves as the student's pass for the appointment. During the appointment, completed course selection sheets will be reviewed and collected. Please remember that all applications for classes that require an application are due at the time of your appointment. Click here to review the Course Guidebook 2016 - 2017.
NOTE: It is very important that students attend their assigned appointments. If students are not able to attend their appointments, they should bring their completed course selection sheets to Mrs. Dawson in the Guidance Office.

AFTER SCHOOL TUTORING
The National Honor Society (NHS) provides a tutoring program for any high school student who is struggling academically. Tutoring will be primarily run by Junior and Senior students from NHS with the help of a High School administrator. The purpose of this tutoring is to give students who are struggling the opportunity to get focused help from role model students. Please contact Mr. Bill Elliott, advisor for NHS, at email@example.com or (734) 401-4251 to make arrangements.
