Schedule Change Requests
(Information obtained from the Humble ISD Middle School Course Planning Guide)
Advisement for the next year begins in early spring and extends over several months. Two verification letters are sent home to encourage communication. In the process of course registration, it is in the best interest of the student that course choices be carefully considered. Students requiring a change in instructional levels within a content area must have the case reviewed by committee members including a counselor, parent, and teacher.
Reviews for students in the Gifted and Talented program are conducted by the Building Selection Committee. All schedule change rules and considerations apply to students with disabilities who receive Special Education services. Any schedule change that adds or drops a special education course or changes modifications for a general education class must be approved by the Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) Committee.
Course or class changes may be considered in the following circumstances:
- when the student is evaluated and needs to be placed in or out of a strategy class
- when a student’s performance indicates the need for a change in level
The class changes occur only at the end of the first three weeks, the end of the first six weeks, or at the end of the semester. These changes require the written permission of the parent or guardian. Special consideration for other course changes will be made on a case by case basis. Seat availability, the time of the change, the effect of the change on the student’s schedule, the basis for the request and other factors will be considered in these potential changes. Schedule changes will not be made solely to change the period the class is held or to change teachers.
