Course Request Changes

Students selected their courses in February and thus they have had plenty of time to request course changes. However, some students have valid reasons to adjust their timetable.
 
Course changes with priority are for only the reasons listed below:
  • Students who are in Grades 9, 10 or 11 who have less than 8 courses.**
  • Students in Grades 12/12+ who do not have enough courses to graduate (30 credits needed to graduate).
  • Students who need a compulsory course to meet a graduation requirement.
  • Students who failed courses and need to repeat them.
  • Students who passed a summer school course, which is still on their timetable.
  • Students who need a prerequisite for an apprenticeship, college or university program. 

***REQUESTS TO CHANGE TO CHANGE TEACHERS WILL NOT BE ACCOMMODATED.

DUE to Covid-19 Restrictions,  course-change requests for any other reason will only be considered in exceptional circumstances. Many courses are full and we CANNOT adjust cohorts, which were established by the school board and not the school..  
 
If a course change is possible, it will be reflected on the parent portal and the students D2L. 
 
**Students need to have earned 24 credits before they can request a study period. Consequently, students in Grades 9, 10 and 11 will take eight courses. Grade 12 students may have a study period, although a study period is only recommended for students who need to and will use the daily 75 minutes to work on their courses. As well, study periods are not recommended unless a student is on track for a minimum of 31 credits.
