Course Change Procedures

Course Change Requests

1. Before any change is considered, students must demonstrate they have utilized all available resources including, but not limited to:

  •  Speaking with their teacher during ACE intervention
  •  Working with the teacher during their office hours
  •  Attending after-school peer tutoring!

2. If the concern still exists, there must be a face to face conference between the teacher and parent to address any concerns. After the conference, a time period of 2-3 weeks must be given to address concerns discussed at the meeting. 

3. If a strong concern still exists, the parent must email the Assistant Principal, outlining the concerns and reasons for the request and the steps that have been taken before that point to resolve the problem. At this time, a second face to face conference may be necessary. 

*Adhering to the above policy means that a change will be considered, not that a change will be made. If you have further questions, please contact your counselor, directly.
