All level changes are subject to administrative approval in collaboration with the classroom teacher, department supervisor, school counselor and parent. Timing and space availability may also be a factor. Students must continue to follow their current schedule while any change is being reviewed and until such time that a schedule change is approved. When students make level changes, grades will follow the student, however grade adjustments may be applicable based on individual circumstances. In instances where a student is leveling “up”, it is recommended that students be provided with an opportunity to make up designated assignments as an alternative to a reduction in grade.
Level change requests generally operate outside the drop period. Level change requests will not be entertained during the last 3 weeks of the second marking period (all courses). Additionally, after the close of the third marking period, students may no longer level up or down from a full year course.
