CCA Counseling

The mission of SDUHSD's counselors is to provide a comprehensive counseling program that addresses the academic, career and personal/social development of all students. We are committed to helping provide a safe and supportive environment in which all students can acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to become life-long learners and responsible, productive individuals.

We follow the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) Model for a comprehensive counseling program.

Add/Drop Window - Spring 2022

Welcome to the start of the spring 2022 semester! If you would like to request a schedule change, you may do so during the add/drop window for the reasons below only. The master schedule was built based on students' spring course requests and changes will be very limited at this time.

  • Remediation of prior D or F grades, if space is available

  • Level changes between AP or Honors and college prep, if space is available

  • Change schedule rigor by dropping a core academic subject (English, math, science, social science, world language) for an elective or vice versa

  • Dropping a course for an unscheduled period

  • Adding a support class (Math Support or Academic Literacy)

  • Dropping an unscheduled period and adding a course, if space is available

In order to request a change, please complete the 2021-2022 Spring Add/Drop Request Form. This form must be completed using the parent email address on file in Aeries in order to confirm parent consent and will only be open for submission outside the hours of 7:45-3:30 Monday-Friday. During school hours, the Google Form will be turned off for submission so that counselors can process change requests. At the end of the school day, if a schedule change request is denied, an email will be sent to the parent email sharing that the request was denied because the course was full, did not work with the student’s schedule, or did not follow policy. If a schedule change is approved, it will be reflected in the student’s Aeries the following day and the student will receive an invitation to the new Google Classroom within 24 hours.

Please note due to the volume of requests received, counselors will be unable to respond to emails or phone calls regarding schedule change requests at this time. The add/drop window will be open until January, 26, 2022, after which students may drop a class with a withdrawal on their transcript and will not be able to add a class in its place.
