Once you receive your schedule, check for the following:
All 4 core academic classes (i.e. you have English, Math, Science, Social Studies)
No Duplicate classes (i.e. English twice) or Missing classes (i.e. no class/blank for 2nd period)
No Classes you have already taken/passed (i.e. you can only take HOPE once)
No Classes for which you are not eligible (i.e. English 4 when you are a Freshman)
If all of your classes are correct but you want to request a schedule change, please complete the Schedule Change Form
Note: You are NOT guaranteed a schedule change – some schedules are just not able to change.
