Do my course selections correlate with… – Post high school plans – Prerequisites (C’s or better) – Outside commitments Will I be able to change my schedule next year? Read the Schedule Adjustment Guidelines: Choose your courses wisely. The choices you make now will determine your 2009-2010 schedule. Schedule changes will not be made to accommodate teacher requests, off-campus classes, or extracurricular and athletic activities. Schedule Adjustment Guidelines Continued Mandatory schedule changes will be made for students who completed an approved summer school course or for students who failed a course. Schedule Adjustment Guidelines Continued Adding/Dropping courses: requests will be considered during August school business days. Courses will be added to replace a dropped course if: • they improve integrity of schedule for graduation or college eligibility purposes. • there is space available in an elective class during the same period as the dropped course. After the first day of school, requests will require a conference with an administrator. If approved, the student may be required to make up missed work. Schedule Adjustment Guidelines Continued Level Changes (from an honors course to a college prep course) will be considered During the first four weeks of the semester, if there is space available. Prior to any level change being made, student and parent/guardian must have contact with current teacher. When will I meet with LCCHS staff and what do I need to bring with me ? You must bring a completed and signed course selection sheet on Wednesday, April 1st or Thursday, April 2nd based on the alpha schedule You will meet individually with a staff member at this time.
