Class Change Policy

Students chose their own classes. Therefore, once school begins, classes will only be changed for Necessary Academic Reasons (graduation requirements, CTE Pathways, and/or teacher recommendation.) 

PROCESS

Class Change appointments with counselors will be available August 3 – 20. Students may sign up for a 15 minute appointment with their counselor using the Canyon Creek Software, which will open on August 2, at 8 am and will close on August 20, at 10 am.  (You MUST attend the classes on your current schedule until the change has been made.)

*STUDENTS WILL NEED to pay a $5.00 class change fee.

TIMELINE

BEFORE SCHOOL BEGINS

Schedules need to be complete for the entire year. Any adjustments should be made before school begins in August, on designated class change days.

BEGINNING OF A SEMESTER

At the beginning of term 1 or term 3, all necessary ACADEMIC changes must be completed within the first four days (2 A DAYS and 2 B DAYS) of the term.

MID-SEMESTER CHANGES

At the end of the first or third term, ‘mid-semester’ changes will be allowed ONLY for extreme circumstances. Parents must speak with their student’s counselor.  

ALL CHANGES must be done by the end of the first week of any term.

Making changes after that date disrupts teaching and puts students behind in curriculum. If special circumstances arise, a parent must make an appointment with the counselor to discuss the change after the first week of a new semester.

*According to Alpine School District Policy, class changes should not be made after three weeks into the nine week grading term.

*Counselors will not overfill classes to accommodate class changes.
