Course Changes

Teacher Initiated Course Withdrawal

A student may be withdrawn from a course with no penalty if the withdrawal is initiated by the teacher. The teacher must complete the Teacher Initiated Course Withdrawal form which must then be signed by the student, parent, and department leader. The completed form must be submitted to the school counselor. The student will not be withdrawn from the course until the form is complete and the student is expected to continue to attend the class until notified by his/her school counselor that the change has been made.

Student Initiated Course Withdrawal

If a student requests to withdraw from a course after the first two weeks of the class beginning, but before the course has reached the mid-way point, he/she must complete a Student Initiated Course Withdrawal form. This form must be signed by the student, parent, teacher (indicating awareness of the request, not approval or disapproval), and department leader. The student should be aware that a WD will appear for the course on their report card and final transcript. The student will not be withdrawn from the course until the form is complete and the student is expected to continue to attend the class until notified by his/her school counselor that the change has been made.

Student Initiated Course Withdrawal after the course is more than 50% complete

If a student requests to withdraw from a course after the course has reached its mid-way point, the student must complete the appropriate Student Initiated Course Withdrawal form. This form must be signed by the student, parent, teacher (indicating awareness, not approval or disapproval) and department leader. The student should be aware that a WF (Withdraw Failing) will appear on their report card and final transcript, regardless of what their current grade in the class is. The student will not be withdrawn from the course until the form is complete and the student is expected to continue to attend the class until notified by his/her school counselor that the change has been made.

Level Change Request

If a student or teacher would like to change the level of the course that the student is enrolled in, the Level Change Request form must be completed. This form must be signed by the student, parent, teacher, and department leader. If the teacher is recommending the level change, there will be no penalty to the student. If the teacher does not feel that the level change is appropriate, a WD or WF will appear on the student's report card and final transcript, depending on how complete the course is when the request is made (see guidelines above). The student will not be transferred to the new level until the form has been completed and the student's counselor has notified him/her that the change has been made.
