How to Make a Schedule Change

Parents do not need to make an appointment with a counselor to get a class changed. In general, schedule changes are not made after the deadline at the end of the school year. If there is a legitimate reason for a schedule change, there is a yellow Schedule Change Request Form that the student should pick up in the Counseling Services Office. When the form is completed and signed, it should be returned to Counseling Services. All schedule changes are subject to class size restrictions. Counselors will see students in the order in which the forms are received if the change is for one of the valid reasons listed on the form. If the change is for another reason, the student will be contacted after all legitimate reasons are dealt with. 

Thank you,
Lisa Sorensen, Director School Counseling Services
