SaJHS CLASS CHANGE POLICY
Updated Aug 2017
Salem Jr. High School’s master schedule of classes is determined by student course requests, which are made during registration. Students are expected to remain in the classes they select at registration. With this in mind, carefully select your courses based on: meeting graduation requirements, college admission recommendations, preparing for a career and building skills.
BEFORE THE SEMESTER BEGINS
Students will be allowed to make changes during a designated time each semester for a $5 fee. Making an appointment will reduce the amount of time students will need to wait to meet with a counselor.
AFTER THE SEMESTER BEGINS
During the first week of each semester, students may continue to make changes for a $5 fee by talking to any counselor on a first come, first served basis before school, after school, during lunch, or by making an appointment with a counselor.
After the deadline (first week of the semester) class changes will only be considered for one of the following reasons:
Class changes requested after the first week of the new semester for any reason other than the above, will need to be made with an official appeal in writing to the “Class Change Appeal Committee.” The forms for the appeal process are in the Counseling office. If a class change is granted by the committee, it will be based on class availability and made with the least impact to the student’s schedule. Class changes will generally not be approved by the Appeal Committee.
DROPPING A CLASS
Students seeking credit for a course must be enrolled in that class before midterm. If a class is dropped after midterm, and it is approved, an “F” grade will be posted to the student’s transcript and the student will not earn credit for the new class.
