2022.2023 Schedule Change Process


The schedule change form is linked below. Please read the valid reasons that meet the criteria for a schedule change before you complete the form.

Please take a minute to look at your YEARLONG schedule and determine if you are in classes that you need for graduation. Are you enrolled in a course that you have already successfully completed? Is your schedule balanced? When our office uses the term balance, it means that we hope to get an even amount of academics in the fall and the same number in the spring.

For example, if you are taking four core classes this year, a balanced schedule would be one that has two core in the fall and two in the spring.  If you see that your schedule for the fall has too little or too many academics, this is cause for a legitimate schedule change.  The other issue you may see is there might be 2 classes in the same block and missing one in another.  This is a problem that is a legitimate schedule change request.


The other reasons for legitimate schedule changes are as follows:

- need a specific course to graduate

-failed and must repeat a specific course to graduate

-earned credit for a course listed on the schedule in the regular day, summer school, on-line, etc.

-balancing (as mentioned above)

-changing levels (i.e.- regular to honors)

*If your schedule change is not for one of these legitimate reasons, please do not submit a change request form.

Please note that we do not make "change of teacher" schedule changes.  Please do not ask to switch teachers.

 Also, we do not make changes to put certain classes in the morning or afternoon.  Please do not submit a request for this.  Along with that, requesting a specific course to be first or second semester is not something that we can accommodate either.

Lastly, schedules are very tight, and we cannot guarantee that your legitimate request can be honored based upon our ability to make the changes requested.

 If you fall into the legitimate parameters and wish to initiate a schedule change, please complete the digital schedule change form.  No emails or voicemails about schedule issues will be addressed.  Only the digital form will be considered
