Schedule Changes


General Information:


1.  As a practice, the school district does not honor requests for teacher changes.  Any concerns in this area need to be directed to the appropriate                   supervisor.

2.  Schedules reflect the student's grade level for 2016-2017.  Students are promoted to grade 10 if they have earned 33 credits at the end of grade 9;              to grade 11 if they have earned 66 credits at the end of grade 10; and to grade 12 if they have earned 98 credits at the end of grade 11.

3.  Students will have from September 6-13 to request period for period elective changes.  Elective changes from the start of school through                    September 13 will be considered on a period for period basis pending availability.  This will be the only time electives will be changed during the 

     2016-2017 school year.  Changes to electives will not be allowed mid-year.


The schedule process at WHRHS is a very careful and important matter which requires the input of students, teachers, counselors, and parents. Students are making a commitment which determines the master schedule and staffing needs for the coming school year.  Outlined below are acceptable reasons for course changes once the schedules are finalized before the start of the school year:

  • to address a failure which prohibits progress to the next sequential course 
  • to take into account successful summer school remedial courses
  • to correct a data processing error 
  • to permit seniors to fulfill graduation requirements 

In addition, students who request to drop a course once school has begun must follow the deadlines as described below: 

Semester One Course

  • Dropping a course prior to October 5, 2016 will result in the course not being reported on the transcript.
  • Dropping the course after this date will result in a WP or WF on the transcript.

Semester Two Courses

  • Dropping a course prior to March 3, 2017 will result in the course not being reported on the transcript.
  • Dropping the course after this date will result in a WP or WF on the transcript.
Year-Long Courses
  • Dropping a course prior to November 15, 2016 will result in the course not being reported on the transcript.
  • Dropping a course after this date will result in a WP or WF reported on the transcript.
