Online Bell Schedule
Fall 2020 Schedule Change Requests

Prior to the 1st day of school, email your academic advisor if a course is missing or there is an allowable change that you would like to make.  ​

From Tuesday Aug 18th to Friday October 2nd: 
​All requests for an allowable change must be made through our online Guidance portal


Allowable changes are limited to:

  • Leveling down from a course
  • Dropping an unneeded course
  • Addition of an athletic/audition based course (requires coach/director approval) 

Request Reminders:

  • Students may not switch courses (I had AP Gov, now I want AP Econ)
  • Students may not request teachers (I don’t want Dr. Nolan, I want Mr. Reid)
  • Students may not request specific free periods (I don’t want a 5th period because I have a job)
  • Students may not request a period preference ( I want to be in the 2nd period of Algebra 1) 

The online Guidance portal will let students request an allowable change and then send an email to the parent for approval.  Once the approval is given, the request is automatically shared with the teacher of the course being dropped or leveled down.  After the teacher confirms the request, it will automatically email the designated academic advisor.  Academic advisors will verify that the request is allowable, make the necessary adjustments to the student’s schedule and let the student know.  

We thank you ahead of time for your patience in the process of allowable changes during the first 6 weeks of school.  ALL LEVEL DOWNS/DROPS must be made by Friday, Oct. 2nd (6-week progress report).  If missed, students will have an opportunity to level down or drop an unneeded course at the end of the semester.  
 
Please note that we try our best to minimize the disruption of a student’s schedule, but sometimes an approved request can affect other courses.
