On April 30, teachers distributed student schedules for the 2013-2014 school year. It is important for parents to take time to look at the schedule with their student to ensure its accuracy. Please consider the following questions as you look at the schedule.
1. Is this the desired schedule for the 2013-2014 school year? Schedule changes will be accepted up until May 31, 2013.
2. Are all trimesters of the required courses that were selected included in the schedule?
3. Has your student failed any courses this year that need to be retaken that are not in the schedule?
4. Are there any empty periods on the schedule? NO student should have an empty period.
5. Is the academic load balanced between trimesters?
If you would like to make any changes, please complete the attached Schedule Change Form. This form must be signed by a parent and returned to the WHS Counseling Center by Friday, May 31, 2013. Schedule changes are made based on first-come, first served. Please understand that classes may fill up and some schedule changes may not be possible.
Notes for Seniors (Class of 2014):
1 If your senior is signed up to take Mentoring or Independent Co-Op, you are giving him/her permission to be out of the building during that scheduled time. Seniors do earn credit for these courses and both count toward graduation requirements.
2. If your senior is signed up for a Senior Seminar release period, you are giving him/her permission to be out of the building during that scheduled time. Although seniors can earn one credit for Senior Seminar, that credit does NOT count toward athletic eligibility nor does it count toward the 42 credits that are required to graduate.
3. Seniors will not be able to drop a class and add a Senior Seminar release period after the May 31st deadline. Please make sure your schedule changes are complete by the deadline.
4. The senior year schedule is very important in the college preparedness and application process. Please make sure your senior is taking a rigorous course load.
If you have any questions, please contact your child’s counselor.
