    Schedule Changes

    Welcome back students and families, we are about to start our new trimester school year and schedules are currently available to view on Powerschool.  Students, if you need your Powerschool password please email your counselor, listed below, to request your password.  The counselors will be available to work on schedule change requests starting on Thursday August 6th through Friday August 7th. There will be no schedule changes once school begins.  To ensure the saftey of our students and families, all requests for schedule changes will occur through email.  Counselors will be reviewing all requests and you will be notified if your request has or has not been completed via email.   We will only be doing schedule change requests for the following:

    • Student is missing a period
    • Student has two courses in the same period
    • Student does not have a schedule
    • Student is missing a graduation requirement
    • Student has already taken and passed the course they are schedule in

    About This Year’s AP Exams (coming soon)

    Any student already registered for an exam can choose to cancel at no charge, this year only.

    • For the 2019–20 exam administration only, students can take a 45-minute online free-response exam at home. 

    • AP curricula are locally developed and we defer to local decisions on how best to help students complete coursework. To be fair to all students, some of whom have lost more instructional time than others, the exam will only include topics and skills most AP teachers and students have already covered in class by early March.

    • Colleges support this solution and are committed to ensuring that AP students receive the credit they have worked this year to earn.

    • Students will be able to take these streamlined exams on any device they have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. Taking a photo of handwritten work will also be an option.

    Test security:

    • The exam questions are designed and administered in ways that prevent cheating; we use a range of digital security tools and techniques, including plagiarism detection software, to protect the integrity of the exams.
