Course Change Requests

At the start of a new school year, students who need to make a change to their class schedule should reach out to their counselors by completing a digital course request form (see link below). Counselors are the only people that will make course changes. Please do not come to the campus seeking out your child’s counselor before school starts. Counselors will not be available on site to make changes for your child and will be busy balancing classes. Depending on the number of change requests, it may take several days for changes to be completed. Students are required to attend the courses on their schedules until they receive a new schedule.
