A teacher, parent, or student may request reconsideration of a course assignment or level placement after the start of the academic year or semester if supporting data or extenuating circumstances indicate that a change is appropriate. Such requests should be submitted in writing to the appropriate Department chairperson stating the change of level or course requested and the reason for the request. No request for a level or course change should be submitted unless the student making the request:
• Has been attending classes faithfully and is prepared for class by doing appropriate homework
• Comes equipped with necessary materials and textbook
• Goes for extra help after or before school if/as prescribed by a teacher. Each situation will be reviewed carefully by the Department chair in consultation with the guidance counselor, assistant principal and classroom teacher/s. Parents will be informed of the decision as soon as possible. The principal retains the final decision in the case of disagreement.
