Dear Parents and Students
In June and July students were mailed a packet of documents that included important scheduling information as well as a copy of their schedule for the 2012-2013 school year. It is imperative that the documents you received were reviewed carefully. Below are some of the information covered in the June and July mailings:
Please verify that all of your contact information is correct. Please note the accuracy of your phone numbers and your email addresses. If any information is incorrect, please contact the Main Office at 510-881-4300 and leave the correct information with the receptionist.
SCHEDULE CHANGE REQUESTS AND ISSUES
Counselors were available from Wednesday, August 1 through Friday, August 3 to respond to schedule change requests for the reasons listed below. On these days, changes to course selections were made for the following three reasons:
- The schedule shows “Missing Course Pre-requisite”.
- The student is not scheduled into a required course (i.e. English).
- The schedule is incomplete (all students should have 14 total semesters of coursework).
If students wish to make a schedule change for any other reason, a $20.00 schedule change fee will be charged. Schedule change fees may be paid through the Online Store beginning August 6th. Schedule change requests may be submitted at school via a request form available at the Main Office beginning August 10th. The deadline to submit schedule change requests is August 15th. Counselors will contact students individually for schedule changes based on the order of the request submission.
Not all schedule change requests can be accommodated due to class size limitations, fulfillment of prerequisites, and other reasons. However, we will make every effort to create a schedule that meets the needs of your child.
MISSING COURSE PRE-REQUISITE
This indicates that the student plans to take a pre-requisite requirement in the summer for a proposed course in the fall. Your child should bring proof of successful completion of their summer school work to their scheduling appointment. The deadline to submit grade reports for summer work was Wednesday, July 25. You will have ample time to purchase books for those classes your child is still waiting to be scheduled, pending verification of successful summer school completion.
Please be reminded that students who fail to make up a required course in summer school, will be placed on Academic Probation for the Fall 2012 semester. Please refer to the Academic Probation policy in section 5.11 in the Student-Parent Handbook.
Students should have either a 5th or 7th Lunch indicated AND a 6th or 8th Lunch.
