Timetable Changes for Semester Two are Now Closed
NOTES ON CHANGING CLASSES:
- Most classes are full – timetable changes will be very difficult.
To request a change, click here and we will try to make the change.
- The last day to request a change is February 9 at 3:00 p.m.
- If you don’t hear from us by February 10, then we weren’t able to make the change.
- Please attend all currently scheduled courses until you are notified if a seat becomes available
- Moving sections of the same course is only allowed if the new section is smaller. This helps us too! Requests based on the name of the teacher, the teacher’s teaching style, time of day, or other students in the class will be disregarded. Extenuating circumstances are always considered after an interview with your vice-principal (Ms. Wilkie A-K & Ms. Davy L-Z, )
- Available seats are assigned based on need (graduation requirement, post-secondary requirement, medical accommodation, etc), then chronological order
NOTES ON E-LEARNING:
- All e-Learning classes are already closed or have a waitlist
- All students who request e-Learning will begin on the waitlist
- Students must follow their current timetable with the mindset that they may never be advanced into e-Learning
- Any student admitted to e-Learning after the first day of school WILL BE BEHIND and we advise that you consider this carefully before accepting the seat
- There is usually an e-Learning orientation session for all students taking or waitlisted for e-Learning
