Priority will be given to newly enrolled students, students with IEP and 504 requirements, and students with a scheduling error (i.e. missing a class period, placed in the wrong course level, or missing a graduation and/or college requirement). Schedule change requests to accommodate teacher and/or lunch preferences will not be considered.

The last day to request a schedule change for 1st Semester is Friday, September 7 @ 2:30pm.
