Counselors work with students and parents in the selection of classes and the creation of education programs that prepare students for continuing education, the school-to-work transition, and a wide variety of interest areas. Students are expected to honor their course selections. It is the school’s position that schedule changes after the school year begins disrupt instructional time. Staffing and the master schedule are determined by the spring course selections. After the first two calendar weeks of a semester no schedule changes may be made. There are, however, circumstances that warrant a schedule change. Any requested schedule change must have a parent signature and meet one of the following criteria:
1. Inappropriate placement.
2. A course completed in summer school.
3. Failure to meet course prerequisites.
4. Failure to meet graduation requirements.
5. Elective changes due to a change in college or career plans.
