    Dear Students and Parents of the Class of 2021, 2022, and 2023, 

    This communication relays important information about student schedules for the 2019-20 school year and course requests for 2020-21.

    Current year Schedules for current 10th and 11th grades:  Due to school closures, schedule adjustments were made to some 10th and 11th graders 2019-20 schedules.   All 9-week courses that were to begin in the 4th Marking Period were removed from student schedules.  In lieu of beginning new MP4 courses, all MP3 courses were extended to run through the end of the year.  This means students are not being introduced to any new courses or new teachers; their schedules will remain as they were on 3/12/2020.  Schedules that had no new courses beginning in MP4 were not adjusted.  Credit values for courses that are extending are not changing.  Counselors will work with students to ensure that their graduation requirements will be met and that those pursuing Scholars' Diplomas will continue to be able to do so.

     

    Program Planning Info for 2020-2021 School Year, for all grade levels:

    During the months of January and February, your student completed their Program Planning for the 2020-21 School Year.  As course requests are being finalized, there are two remaining dates to be aware of:

    April 20, 2020 (Monday): Verification reports will be made available to students on the portal. CLICK HERE for instructions on how to access/print these reports.

    Students should review their Course Verification Reports carefully to confirm the courses they have previously requested are accurate and sequentially appropriate. Students can request a change to requests by emailing their current counselor directly.  If a current 10th or 11th grade student would like to request an elective that was removed from MP4 this year, they should email their counselor to add that course to next year’s requests.  Courses were not automatically transferred to next year’s requests. If students are making no changes to their request, they do not need to email their counselor.  Verification Reports do not need to be signed this year.

     

    April 27, 2020 (Monday):  This is the last day students may change course requests (electives) for next year. 

    We understand that some students might need more time to determine their readiness for the next course in sequence.   We would encourage all students to have an open discussion with their teachers about recommendations/course placements for next year.  At the end of the school year if a student feels they need to make a level adjustment to their requests, they should discuss this with their teacher AND email their counselor before the last day of school.  However, changes to electives cannot be made after April 27, 2020.  

     

    Please contact your counselor (email addresses below) if you have any questions!

    CRITICAL COURSE CHANGE POLICY

    Changes in course requests will only be honored for the following two reasons: 

    1:  Failure to meet the required prerequisite/ misplacement in course; or

    2:  Level Change that has been verified by the teacher. 

    NO CHANGES TO COURSES (CORE COURSES OR ELECTIVES) WILL BE MADE AFTER APRIL 27, 2020 UNLESS THEY MEET THE REQUIREMENTS ABOVE.  THERE CAN BE NO EXCEPTIONS. PLEASE PLAN YOUR REQUESTS ACCORDINGLY.
