    Scan the QR code below to make a schedule change request. Requests will be prioritized in the following order:

    2. Correcting errors in class levels (typically math & world language)

    3. Balancing class sizes

    4. Student-requested elective changes, as space allows



    Please do not email your counselor to request a schedule change, as it becomes difficult to track all requests that come through email.
