Important Information
Course Change
The schedule is created after students’ choices and interests. Accordingly, courses change is highly
discouraged after course selections. One week change period is applicable to any new classes
after starting the academic year. Student-initiated requests for course changes take place within
the first week of the scheduled course. Attendance in the students’ original class is required until
the change has been confirmed by the school administration. Consultation with the student must
occur before allowing student to change their schedule. Student is responsible to finish and
complete any work missed in their new course.
The teacher may recommend that a student be changed to another course if the student does
not meet the minimum course expectations.

Below the steps that need to be followed when requesting a course change after the initial one-
week period:
1. Student obtains petition form from counselor for the course change.
2. Parent, current teacher, or receiving teacher recommends the change.
3. Counselor makes a recommendation.
4. A final decision will be made by the Guidance Committee, taking all recommendations into
account.

Principals and Guidance Counselor)
Pre-requisites
Pre-requisites are required for some courses. Pre-requisites are listed in course descriptions, and students should be aware of them when making course selections. Students are required to read the description of each course selected in order to avoid changing courses.
Attendance
Regular attendance and punctuality are emphasized at INPS-AD. Because performance in class through collaborative activities is an essential element of student learning and assessment, students must be present and absent must be minimized. To receive course credit, students may not accumulate more than unexcused 6 classes per course per semester. Students exceeding this absence limit will receive the grade on their final transcript but will not be granted credit. Four tardiness are equal to one unexcused absence.
