Students chose their own schedules. Therefore, once school begins classes will only be changed for Necessary Academic Reasons with parental approval.

PROCESS

Step 1: Changing the Schedule

  • A parent must be present with the student OR fill out a GREEN CHANGE REQUEST FORM.
  • No appointments will be made for class changes once school begins. Counselors will meet with students on a first-come basis before or after school or during the period in question.

Step 2:  Book Depository and Finance Office

  • STUDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE to return books to the book depository.
  • STUDENTS WILL NEED to pay a $5.00 class change fee for every schedule change.

TIMELINE

BEFORE SCHOOL BEGINS– Schedules should be complete for entire year. All adjustments should be done before school begins in August on designated class change days.

BEGINNING OF A SEMESTER-  Necessary ACADEMIC changes at the beginning of term 1 or term 3 must be completed within the first four days (2 A DAYS and 2 B DAYS) of the term.

MID-SEMESTER CHANGES   End of first or third term ‘mid-semester’ changes will be allowed ONLY for extreme circumstances. Parents must speak with their student’s counselor.  

ALL CHANGES must be done by the end of the first week of any term
Making changes after that date disrupts teaching and puts students behind in curriculum. If special circumstances arise, a parent must make an appointment with the counselor to discuss the change after the first week of a new semester.

FINAL DEADLINEAccording to Alpine School District policy, class changes should NOT be made after three weeks into the nine-week grading term. After the third week, if a class is dropped, the student will receive an “F” grade for the term in the withdrawn class and will be released to the parents for that period. The student will not be allowed to add another class until the next term.
