LINK TO LETTER AND COURSE REQUEST CORRECTION FORM

 

*The April 18 deadline is very important because it “drives” the course offerings and helps make certain that we have enough courses to meet the entire student-body demand.  Also, please know that this is not the student’s class schedule; it is simply a confirmation of the courses requested. You will receive a copy of the official class schedule at your high school's registration/schedule pick-up before school begins in the fall.

 

ONCE AGAIN: ALL SCHEDULE CHANGE REQUESTS MUST BE MADE IN WRITING ON THE FORM PROVIDED AND DATED April 18, 2019. CORRECTIONS WILL NOT BE MADE AFTER THE DEADLINE.
