Final chance for students to make schedule changes on Thursday

The final window for students to change their schedules closes on Thursday at 4:15 p.m.

The final deadline for students to make changes to their course request for 2024-25 is approaching, officially closing on Thursday, Feb.15, at 4:30 p.m. 

Students have been able to view their course requests since Feb. 1 and will need to fill out a Google form to make changes.

“What happens is right now, we’re just looking at course requests,” lead counselor Amanda Zambaisi said. “We’re just looking at numbers and how many students want to take Art or AP Human Geography. The only opportunity to change after Feb. 15 will be with programs, so [that would be] if someone wants to get into a program or out of a program. [Another exception is] schedule corrections, which would be if a student earned credit for a class, or they earned credit over the summer.”

According to Zambaisi, with over 100 students already having filled out the form, timing is essential. Previously set in April, the final deadline being in the third quarter of the school year can be of immense help to not only the counselors making the schedules but the district as well. 

“The district requires that all schedule course requests by the end of February, for hiring purposes,” Zambaisi said. “So at this time every year, we send our numbers to administration so they can hire the teachers that they need, but when we had a schedule change opportunity in April, obviously that messed up the numbers that we already had.”

From changes in electives to core classes, the counselors have seen it all. 

“I suspect that sometimes students go back and talk to their friends about what classes they’re taking, and then sometimes they talk to their teacher about levels,” Zambaisi said. “So sometimes they’ll sign up for advanced, talk to their teacher, and want to change it to on-level, or vice versa.”

But for sophomore Sarayu Alluri, who recently requested a change in multiple classes, the later opportunity to change her mind was helpful. 

“I switched from AP Environmental Science to AP Physics and AP Statistics to Accounting,” Alluri said. “I find this opportunity very helpful because I have extra time to thoroughly think about my schedule and get the classes I want.”
