Please read in full before submitting a request for a change to your timetable.
You will be receiving your finalized schedule on Wednesday, September 4. Our priority is to have students in a complete timetable (8 courses) and to have students in all their required courses and elective choices.
Our timetable was built upon the requests (and course verification changes) we received. The majority of our courses are at class size limit at this time. Some students will be disappointed that they did not receive every course they requested. Often when a student has singleton classes, or courses in a special program, it reduces the flexibility of a student’s schedule.
IF YOU WISH TO MAKE A CHANGE TO YOUR SCHEDULE, PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE FOLLOWING:
- We only keep a waitlist for first three weeks of school for those courses required for post-secondary entrance.
- Requests for changes to elective courses must be received by Friday, September 13. No late forms will be received this year. Counsellors will work to accommodate your request up until September 20.
Course change requests will be reviewed in this order:
Priority #1: Incomplete schedule – students who do not have a total of 8 courses (one in each block)
Priority #2: Incorrect course – students who have do not have (or who have met) the prerequisite for a course – e.g. completed Social Studies at Summer Session). This does not include ‘I changed my mind and don’t want this class any more.
Priority #3 Request for different course
- We have found that students should consider waiting to hand in their Priority 3 changes until after they have been to all of their classes for the first two days. Once we have moved a student out of a class we are rarely able to reconstruct the schedule back into those classes.
- Counsellors will be in touch with students through email if additional information is required.
Continue to follow the courses on your schedule until you have received A NEW SCHEDULE with a counsellor’s signature and the date on the bottom.
Starting Monday, September 9, new schedules will be available for pick-up at the office first thing in the morning or at lunch time or given to you directly when you meet with a counsellor
