Class Schedules
We do our best to meet student requests, while also balancing graduation requirements, class sizes, staffing and other factors.  In some cases, a change request can be accommodated, and in other cases changes are not possible.  If you have a schedule change request, please follow this process:

  • Schedule changes cannot be made until school is back in session. Please avoid contacting the counseling office until the first day of school. 
  • Please attend the first day of class according to the schedule you currently have (even if you are requesting a change).
  • Once school is back in session, fill out a Schedule Appointment form (in the office).
  • We will then meet with students individually, throughout the first week of class, to discuss options.
  • Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
