News and Highlights


Schedule Change Info

Now that school started, schedule changes are limited to the following reasons:
  • computer error
  • required for graduation
  • missing prerequisite
  • level change
  • made-up failed course 
  • program change (CTC, LE, Delta)  

Make schedule changes personally through an appointment with the student's assigned counselor.

Our priority is to make sure that students have received the courses that are required for graduation.  

Lines may be long, but we encourage students to come to the counseling office and make appointments during their lunch and study halls, or during a class they wish to drop. We will do our best to fit them in as quickly as possible.
