Pike Road Schools Dual Enrollment Information Packet:
SCHEDULE CHANGE GUIDELINES, COURSE SELECTIONS, & DUAL ENROLLMENT INFO BELOW
Parents and Students,
Selecting courses is one of the most important tasks students and parents can do. Proper course selection allows students to meet graduation requirements, explore possible career interests, prepare for post-secondary education opportunities and engage in activities he/she enjoys doing. Course selection is vital to the school as well, as our schedule for the next school year is built on the choices our students make now. Teaching assignments and teacher selection are based on the needs of our schedule.
To make all of these different pieces work together, it is imperative students make the right choices now. The school’s role in course selection will be to confirm with the student his/her choices, and verify the courses selected are indeed wanted or needed by the student. Once this is complete in the spring, schedule changes will be limited. Students will be expected to stay in the courses they choose.
Changes will be made based on misplacement, a desire to take a more challenging course or an extreme change in circumstances. Simply changing one’s mind after the schedule is built, or believing a course is “too hard” are not valid reasons to change classes. Therefore, we expect students and parents to choose next year’s schedule wisely. The counseling office and administration are here to assist in any way possible. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us.
After the deadline to make schedule changes after registration begins, the following are the only reasons to change:
You have an "EMPTY" spot in your schedule.
You are missing a core class (English, Math, Science, History).
You believe you are missing graduation requirements.
You’ve already taken that course and passed.
You have not met the prerequisite for a course.
Athletic PE or Band was left off your schedule
Example reasons a schedule change WILL NOT be considered:
You'd like a specific teacher
You want to have your classes at specific times
You requested a class, and now you no longer to want to take it
You don't like the teacher
You want to be in a class with a friend, etc.
Others that fall into these categories...
Once selected, AP and Honors courses cannot be dropped without administrator approval (choose wisely).
We take a lot of time to develop our master schedule and balance classes to accommodate you based on the selections you make in the spring, so PLEASE choose wisely. Look at the course descriptions and schedule an appointment with your counselor if needed.
