The window for dropping a class ends at the close of school on the second Friday after the start of each semester. When a student drops a class; parents, teachers and the high school principal will be notified and input from them is required. After this time period, students may not drop a class unless extenuating circumstances can be proven. It is the responsibility of the high school principal to determine if there are extenuating circumstances which necessitate the student to drop the class or if the student will remain in the class.
Regardless of when the student drops a class, the grade will not be included in the students grade point average. If possible, the student will be placed in another academic class in order to maintain the minimum class load. Although schedule changes are allowed, no schedule changes will be made during the first week of each semester.
