  • Moving from Advanced to on-level

    If your student is struggling, a level change may be the best fit for them. 

    What courses can I move to On-Level?

    English, Science, History, and Math

    When can level changes occur?  The window for requesting a level change is Monday, September 12th- Sunday, September 18th.  The change will go into effect on Tuesday, September 20th.  Any request outside this window will not be granted.  The next opportunity for a level change will be the first five days of the spring semester (Wednesday, January 4th- Tuesday, January 10th). 

    When are level changes approved? Some degree of struggle is expected in an Advanced class, and grades may not be up to a student’s (or parents) personal standard at the beginning of the year. We intend for students to remain in the classes they chose during course selection, and to take advantage of the support we have in place for them (i.e. tutoring). Occasionally, students exhaust all possible sources of help and no intervention strategy is successful, therefore a change to On-Level may be the best fit.

     

  • Moving from On-level to Advanced

     

    If your student is not feeling challenged and excelling in an on-level course, a level change to Advanced may be the best fit. 

    What courses can I move to Advanced?

    Science, History, and English. 

    What about moving to Advanced Math?

    Students must qualify based on criteria from the previous school year in order to be placed in Advanced Math. If you are new to the district and wish to qualify, please contact your counselor. 

    When can level changes to Advanced occur?  The window for requesting a level change is Monday, September 12th- Sunday, September 18th.  The change will go into effect on Tuesday, September 20th.  Any request outside this window will not be granted.

    When are level changes to Advanced approved?

    Moving to Advanced will need feedback from the students, parents, and teachers. If approved, the student will remain in the Advanced course for the rest of the school year. 

     

     

  • Dropping an Advanced Elective

     

    If your student is struggling in BIM, French I Advanced, Spanish I, II, or III Advanced, exiting from the course may be the best fit. 

    When can the exit occur?  The window for requesting a level change is Monday, September 12th- Sunday, September 18th.  The change will go into effect on Tuesday, September 20th.  Any request outside this window will not be granted.  The next opportunity for a level change will be the first five days of the spring semester (Wednesday, January 4th- Tuesday, January 10th). 

    When are exits approved? Some degree of struggle is expected in an Advanced high school level class, and grades may not be up to a student’s (or parents) personal standard at the beginning of the year. We intend for students to remain in the classes they chose during course selection, and to take advantage of the support we have in place for them (i.e. tutoring). Occasionally, students exhaust all possible sources of help and no intervention strategy is successful, therefore exiting the course may be the best fit.
