Schedule Change Information

  •  
    Henry M. Jackson High School:  2018-19
     

    The JHS Schedule change form is only available to students the first 5 days of each new semester.

     
    Schedule changes will not be made based on lunch, period, or teacher preferences. Your schedule reflects what you signed up for during spring pre-registration.
     
    Although we would not dispute that it would ideal if we could match each student with the teachers of their choice, it would be irresponsible for us to create a policy that we do not have the capacity to fairly apply to all students. We do not have the capacity to make schedule changes for personality differences, teaching styles, or learning styles. This is why these requests will not be honored.
     
    It is expected that if a student has a concern with a specific teacher, he or she needs to meet with the teacher/parent/administrator to work toward a resolution.
     
    Schedule change requests will only be accepted during the first 5 days of a semester.
    Counselors will have an additional 5 days to process and make changes, if approved.
     
    Assuming there is space available, schedule changes may ONLY be made for the following reasons:
    1. You are a senior and you need the class as a graduation requirement.
    2. You previously failed the course with the same teacher
    3. You failed a prerequisite course and/or need to take/retake the pre-requisite course.
    4. You were not scheduled into a core requirement.
    5. You were placed in a class that was not a pre-registration choice.
    6. Students are encouraged to enroll in challenging courses in preparation for college & career-readiness. Students will not be allowed to move out of an honors or AP course in which they pre-registered.
    7. Because of the importance of taking rigorous academic classes, students will be allowed to move into an honors or AP course, contingent on availability.
     

    Stop

    If you do not fit the above criteria, a schedule change cannot occur.

     

    Adds/drops after the 10th day of the semester
     
    ·         You will receive a failing grade for a class you drop, unless you have a documented medical reason, in which case you will receive an NC (no credit).

    ·         You may not earn credit in classes added after day 10, except with principal approval.


    Enrollment in yearlong classes

    A student who enrolls in a yearlong class will be expected to remain in the course for the full year. You may not drop a yearlong class at the semester to take the class via online or Running Start, unless that is in your original pre-registration yearlong plan.

    NOTE: JHS reserves the right to change a student’s schedule
    without prior student notification.
