This can only take place if you already do NOT have a study hall or a TA period. Remember to complete a blue schedule change request in the guidance office and return it with parent signature to your counselor before the deadline to be considered. We also encourage you to first discuss this with your teacher or counselor and to make sure dropping a credit bearing class after 4 wks is the right decision. Seniors especially should first make certain that a drop of a class in your schedule will not interfere with your diploma or college admissions.
