2019-20 Course Verification and Elective Course Change Requests
2019-2020 Course Verification
It is that time of year for students in the Class of 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 to review their course requests for the 2019-2020 school year.
Class of 2020 – Class of 2022: Verification is done through Home Access Center (HAC) by clicking on the schedule link and scroll to the bottom of the page. You will be able to view the courses your student will take next year. This is not your student’s daily schedule. The finalized schedule will be viewable in mid-August through HAC. Please note that some course selections may have changed since January due to course cancellations or conflicts between two course requests. Students impacted by these changes have been contacted directly by their school counselor.
Class of 2023: The high school schedule link is not available in your HAC at this time. The middle schools will distribute a paper copy for your review later next week. This is not your student’s daily schedule but a list of the courses they are registered to take next fall. The finalized schedule will be viewable in mid-August through HAC.
Important Information regarding Course review
ERROR - If there is an error in your course request-verification: (e.g. should have Physics, but have Biology) contact your assigned school counselor immediately.
ELECTIVE COURSE CHANGE REQUEST - The elective change request window is Monday 5/20 – Friday 5/31. Forms and instructions are available for pick up in each class house as well as on the WV Counseling Department website. These forms must be turned into the class house and signed by a parent/guardian before they will be considered. Emailed change of mind requests will not be accepted.
Please be aware that several factors affect course availability and a student’s final schedule. New enrollments, schedule changes because of summer school courses, and course balancing for reasonable class sizes are some of the factors Waubonsie must take into account. When course seats are limited, priority will be given to upperclassmen who have fewer opportunities left to take the course. Submitted elective change requests will be processed on a SEAT-AVAILABLE basis and are not guaranteed. Our goal is to have each of our students in the classes they requested for next year.
Level placements in core classes were completed in February and will not be part of the change request process at Waubonsie Valley. We will, however, speak with families that have a level concern if an extenuating circumstance has interrupted their student’s academic journey. Please contact the appropriate academic department chair, not your counselor, if your request involves a level change. Counselors will not process any level changes without academic department chair approval. Department chair contact information can be found on the Faculty & Staff section of the WVHS website.
Thank you for your partnership and your patience with this process. Your student’s final schedule will be available for viewing in HAC in mid-August.
