Courses for 2018-19

Course lists for 2018-19 can be viewed on a computer in the Infinite Campus portal by selecting your “Campus Backback.”  Please note that the Backpack is not available on mobile devices.

Please note that any requests for changes need to be made by emailing the Summer Scheduling Change Request form (found on the Guidance website under Course Selection) to Chris Wadsworth, Guidance Administrative Assistant. Requests will be worked on in the order they are received by Ms. Wadsworth. Detailed instructions are on the form and will be included with the notification message.

Dropping/Adding First Semester Courses

The following guidelines should be considered:

1. Dropping a full-year course altogether has the following implications:

  1. From the start of school through the end of the second 8-day rotation (9/28/17) results in no record of that course.
  2. After the end of the second 8-day rotation through the end of the first semester results in a “Withdrawal” on the transcript.
  3. After the end of the first semester (1/10/18) results in a final grade of “F” on the transcript.

2. Changing the level of a full-year course to a different level has the following implications:

  1. From the start of school through the end of the first term (11/2/17) results in no record of the old course on the
    transcript.
  2. After the first term results in a “Withdrawal” on the transcript.
  3. Students/parent(s)/guardian(s) should discuss with the applicable department head how previously-earned grades affect the grade in the new course.

3. Dropping a semester course altogether has the following implications:

Since the first rotation of the year is busy with resolving scheduling issues for students, counselors are unable to meet with seniors about colleges. We are preparing the documents necessary to send to colleges so that we can be ready to start sending transcripts in October.
