Only schedules that meet the following criteria will be considered for changes:
• A change is needed to balance a class size.
• Seniors not enrolled in a course REQUIRED for graduation.
• Students scheduled in a course for which they already have credit.
• Student is enrolled in a course for which the student does not have the prerequisite.
• Student has an incomplete schedule.
• Students enrolled/not enrolled in an application/audition course for which they were approved.
• Student has failed a course and needs to repeat the course.
• Change is needed as a result of a credit earned in summer school or correspondence course.
 
 PreAP/AP Course Schedule Change Requests

Students may submit a request for a level change during the following times:

- The 1st day of August through 4:00 pm the Tuesday prior to the start of the new school year.

- The last five days of the first six weeks grading period and the first five days of the second six weeks grading period.

- The last five days of the first semester and the first five days of the second semester.

Exit Guidelines for PreAP/AP/Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment Courses

1.) To exit a PreAP or AP course, parent/teacher/student conference must occur, and the student must confer with the counselor and principal or principal’s designee.

2.) A student that exits out of a PreAP/AP course will retain this grade in the new course. If a student exits with a grade below 70 in the original course, this will impact their UIL eligibility.

3.) Depending on graduation requirements and credits needed, students attempting to drop an AP or PreAP course for which there is no academic equivalent may result in the student remaining in the course until the conclusion of the Semester.

4.) Exiting a PreAP/AP course prior to the end of a semester will result in loss of weighted credit for the course.
