NCHS Registration 20-21
Schedules for Academic Year 2020-2021
Student schedules are still being finalized. Your classes will not change, but please note that your classes may be moved to a different semester or block prior to the first day of school. You will receive a new copy of your schedule at Open House in August and again in Homeroom on the first day of school. Students should follow the schedule received in Homeroom on the first day of school.
Schedule Change Policy:
No schedule changes are guaranteed. Many classes are already full for next year, but we will do our best to accommodate requests. Many factors go into making a schedule change that are out of our control.
To request a change, please use the link below. DO NOT EMAIL your counselor to request a schedule change. The form MUST be completed online for a request to be considered. This form will become available on Monday, June 1st and will be available until Thursday, June 18th at 2:30 p.m. The form must be completed by THURSDAY, JUNE 18th. *Please note this deadline was extended from 6/11 to 6/18 to allow families adequate time to submit their schedule change requests.*
We want all students to be happy with their schedules, therefore a specific period of time is set aside for students to request schedule changes. Students who would like to request a schedule change must do so during the approved timeframes in fairness to all students. Please understand our classes are very full and changes are never guaranteed. It is likely any change will result in rearranging an entire schedule. The following parameters must be followed when submitting a schedule change request:
- Students must submit schedule change request during the designated window by the indicated deadline.
- Requests must be submitted via the online form linked above; emailed requests will not be considered.
- Schedule change requests will not be accepted or considered beyond the deadline--no exceptions.
- Changes to ask for the same class but with a different teacher or in a different block will not be considered.
- All students who submit a change request will receive an email notification of the outcome of their request by email.
You can access the form here:
Be sure to select the appropriate counselor and include an email and phone number. It is important that you meet this deadline. The next online schedule change window will be August 3rd-7th
Your counselor will notify you if a change has been made via email. Please DO NOT EMAIL YOUR COUNSELOR as they will be checking the online form frequently.
We miss you and hope you have a GREAT Summer!!
