Course Load

COURSE LOAD/DROP/ADD


A.   Students must be scheduled for at least five (5) academic courses each semester.

Independent study will be considered as part of a senior’s minimum course load, however, it will not be considered as part of a junior’s minimum course load. The appropriate administrator must approve any exception.

Extended learning opportunities and VLACS classes count towards a senior’s minimum course load, however, it will not be considered as part of a junior’s minimum course load. The appropriate administrator must approve any exception.

The Community Athletic Certificate, CHS Sport and Community Service Credit do not count towards a student’s course load.


B.    Once a student has been scheduled, he/she will be permitted to change only for necessary and compelling reasons. Such a change must be made with the approval of a guidance counselor and commons administrator. To avoid a grade penalty, the change must be made within the first ten (10) days of the semester if a course is to be added or within 20 days if a course is to be dropped. Drops after 20 days will result in a WF (withdrawal failure) and a 39 calculated into GPA.


C.    Students enrolled in fewer than five units of study per semester will be considered part-time students and will be allowed on school grounds only when attending classes.


D.   The school reports both enrollment and attendance for social security purposes.  For a positive report, students must be enrolled in at least five courses and must be attending school regularly.


E.    Classes are scheduled from 7:45-2:42 every day. Schedules will not be modified to accommodate student work schedules.
