Schedule Changes Update: Parents, you may see that some student’s schedules have been rearranged, they have kept the same classes, but they were rearranged due to lack of staffing for the period the class was initially offered or we were able to increase an offering of a class and had to shift your child’s class to decrease a class size. You may see for some students their classes have been changed if your child has failed a prerequisite from their 1st quarter for a class.

If your child has a schedule change request for 2nd semester, then please follow the process and procedures at this link: 2nd Semester Schedule Change Requests
