Course Change Regulations

Course Change Regulations

Since the registration process is comprehensive and affords many opportunities for communication, schools have adopted procedures regarding schedule changes.

  1. Course change requests must be submitted by June 15th. Changes after June 15 will be allowed for the following:

  • When course requirements have been earned after the completion of the school year: Changes will be made if summer school completion warrants a change. Schedule corrections will be made upon completion of summer school and receipt of final grades and/or transcripts.

  • When there is a computer/clerical error: Corrections will be made as soon as school counseling staff, parents, students, or teachers discover errors. Efforts will be made to make schedule changes within the same block; however, to accommodate the new schedule, changes in more than one block may occur.

  1. A request for teacher change will be considered if the student has previously failed a course with a scheduled teacher and if space permits (see 2nd bullet under #3).

  2. Course change requests prior to June 15 will be considered according to the following conditions:

  • the change is requested in writing

  • the proposed change will not result in a class having over the maximum of 25 students

  • the proposed change is not in conflict with the master schedule

  1. Course Withdrawals after June 15 will require principal approval and the following will apply:

  • Students may not drop a required course.

  • All COURSE WITHDRAWALS after the start of class will adhere to the course withdrawal policy.

  • Requests for course level changes will be considered provided that the proposed change will not result in a class having over the maximum of 25 students and the proposed change is not in conflict with the master schedule and occurs within the 1st quarter.  Seat time requirements still apply.

  • Second semester course changes should be submitted by December 1 to the Assistant Principal of Instruction.

  1. Adding New Courses after June 15 will require principal approval and the following will apply:

  • A student may not enroll in a semester course after the third-class meeting of the course.

  • A student may not enroll in a yearlong course after the fifth-class meeting of the course.

If you believe that there has been an error in your student's schedule that meets the requirements above, please complete this form. The form will stop accepting requests at 5 PM on the 10th day of school. (August 28th, 2023) 

Please be aware that once submitted, you will only receive communication about your request if your change meets the requirements and can be completed. 

If you have questions about course changes, contact Michael Williams, Assistant Principal of Instruction, at mtwilliams@lexrich5.org or call 803-722-5513.
