JG AP Contract 2021-2022
Course Selection Timeline: February-June: Students are guided through the course selection process for Fall semester of the upcoming year. Counselors and teachers carefully explain required and elective class options, and students receive the curriculum guide from their high school that contains all course descriptions. Students are instructed to confer with their parents, teachers, and counselor, and to choose courses carefully to meet their educational goals, considering A-G course requirements, as well as high school graduation. The offering of course sections is highly dependent on the number of students requesting each course section. If students opt to take an Honors or AP level course, there may not be any enrollment space available in any other subject-alike section to allow a student to drop their honors or AP course. Decisions to add/drop honors or AP courses should be made by May 28th in writing. The ability to add or drop courses later will be very limited. August: Most schedules are ready for student pick-up during program verification. After this course selection process, only the following changes may be made: • Errors made by the school; • Simple drops when no other changes are needed and the student does not fall below a minimum class load (written parent permission required); • Teacher recommended level changes; • Credit shortages for seniors; • Class leveling; • Students who have failed once with the same teacher. In order for students to develop a broad subject matter background as well as a degree of specialization in one or more areas, they should carry six subjects, each semester in high school. Students are permitted to enroll in additional courses if their schedule permits and there is room in the courses. Colleges and universities also consider course loads (both quantity & quality) during the senior year. Seniors are strongly urged to take seven subjects both semesters, including a rigorous math course. District Policy on dropping classes once the semester has begun: Occasionally, a student may wish to drop a class once the semester has begun. This should be done no later than the third week of classes. All schedule changes, other than those listed above, must be accompanied by the NLMUSD Schedule Change Appeal Form. Students and parents are urged to consult with the teacher and counselor as soon as possible, as dropping classes can affect grade point average and/or athletic eligibility. If the course is dropped after the third week of classes but before the end of the sixth week, it will be recorded as a “withdrawal” and will not affect grade point average. If the course is dropped after the end of the seventh week, it will be recorded as a failed course on the transcript. Reassignment to another course may require that the student complete any homework, assignments, quizzes, tests, projects, presentations, journals, note-taking, and any other reasonable activity missed due to his/her absence from the course per the teacher’s discretion.
