Schedule Change/Correction Info 2020 - 2021
Henry M. Jackson High School:
THIS POLICY ALSO APPLIES TO 2ND SEMESTER
Your schedule reflects what you signed up for during spring pre-registration.
DO NOT EMAIL YOUR COUNSELOR SEPARATELY TO MAKE CHANGES.
THE SCHEDULE CORRECTION FORM
WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE THE 1ST 5 DAYS OF THE SEMESTER.
You MUST attend the classes in your schedule until a change is made.
Counselors have an additional 5 school days from the first day to process and make changes, if approved.* (2nd Semester 2/15/21)
*Do not email your counselor to follow up if you turn in a request. They will process them first come first served. Check your schedule daily 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.
