Schedule Correction Policy
Henry M. Jackson High School:please do not contact your counselor about changing classes for 2nd semester.Your schedule reflects what you signed up for during spring pre-registration.IN THE EVENT AN ERROR WAS MADE OR YOU QUALIFY TO MAKE A CORRECTION:We are not taking requests for changes/corrections until the first 5 days of 2nd semester, starting 2/1 - 2/7.the counselors will then have another 5 school days to make those changes.you must attend the classes on your schedule until a change is made.
This is a district policy printed in our high school catalog page 11 (AND BELOW).
DO NOT EMAIL YOUR COUNSELOR TO MAKE CHANGES.
Check your schedule daily in HAC to see if changes have been made.
Schedule changes/corrections will not be made based on lunch, period, or teacher preferences. 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. 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 corrections can ONLY be made for the following reasons:
- You are a senior and you need the class as a graduation requirement.
- You previously failed the course with the same teacher.
- You failed a prerequisite course and/or need to take/retake the pre-requisite course.
- You were not scheduled into a core requirement that you requested.
- 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.
- Because of the importance of taking rigorous academic classes, at the start of the school year, students will be allowed to move into an honors or AP course, contingent on availability (beginning of school year only).
If you do not fit the above criteria, a schedule correction cannot occur.
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.Adds/drops after the 10th school day of the semester:
· You may not earn credit in classes added after day 10, except with principal approval.
