SMS Counselors are working on leveling 2nd semester courses as well as fixing issues with schedules that have conflicts or are incomplete. If there is a problem in your schedule then you will be called down in the weeks to come to discuss. Please listen for your name on the intercom and/or come to our office when sent a pass.


Schedule changes are granted, if space allows, assuming you meet one of the following requirements:


  • You are missing a graduation requirement.
  • Your schedule is incomplete or a class is duplicated.
  • You are enrolled in a course that you have already completed and received credit.
  • You are enrolled in a course for which you have not met the prerequisite.
  • You have a physical injury that does not allow participation in a course.
  • You have a signature program error or conflict.
  • A teacher has recommended you for a course or has changed his/her recommendation.
  • You wish to increase or decrease the rigor of your schedule- assuming space is available.


All requests needed to be submitted through the google form before Friday Dec. 6th

No requests will be taken via email or phone.
