Students in Lake Washington High School’s AP US Government & Politics classes get first-hand experience in the legislative process. As part of the class, students crafted Senate Bill (SB) 5171, which bans gender-based price discrimination on similar products
Redmond High School
During the registration process, Redmond High School counselors and staff provide students a great deal of information to ensure that students are able to make informed decisions about their class selection. When registration opens in mid-January, students make their initial course selections. Several weeks later, students confirm their course selections, and registration is finalized. After finalizing registration based on student course selections, RHS constructs the master schedule, hires new teachers, and generates teacher and student schedules based on the student requests submitted during registration. Therefore, RHS will not make any schedule changes after the close of registration, except in very specific situations such as an improper placement in a class, an incomplete schedule, or a missing class needed for graduation. Submitting all requested information by the deadlines communicated by Redmond High School will assist staff in meeting student scheduling needs.
Student Initiated Schedule Changes
The choices made by students during the annual course request process are considered to be final. Courses and teacher assignments for the upcoming school year are based on those choices. Once each semester has started students must remain in their scheduled classes. Schedule change requests will be considered for these reasons only:
1. A student’s schedule is incomplete
2. A senior may need a specific class for graduation
3. A student has accidentally selected a class that they do not meet the prerequisite for
4. A teacher has recommended the student move to a different level within the same discipline (e.g., move from Spanish 3 to Spanish 2)
During the first 5 days of either first or second semester a student may submit a Schedule Change Request Form in the Counseling Center. Once the form is completed and returned to the Counseling Center with the appropriate teacher and parent signatures, the change will be considered, not automatically completed. Any schedule change request that does not meet the criteria above is subject to administrative review. Students must continue to report to their scheduled courses unless otherwise notified of a change.
Schedule Changes – Transcript Policy
Schedule changes within the first five days will not be recorded on the transcript. A “W” (withdrawn) grade will be recorded on the transcript of students dropping courses after the first five (5) days through the fifth (5th) week of the semester. The course will remain on the student’s official transcript but will not impact the student’s GPA. Students will receive an F grade for courses dropped after the 5th week of the semester except in the case of extenuating circumstances as determined by the principal. All schedule changes must follow designated school processes and be approved by counselors/administrators. The ability to schedule students into a different course is limited once the registration process ends. For courses that have multiple levels (general and Honors or AP) circumstances may dictate that students are moved after the 5th day of either semester. A change may be granted for a move up or down in the course level with permission from the student’s teacher, counselor and administrator. However, students should be aware that their transcripts will reflect the original course with a “W” (non-credit bearing, no effect on GPA) grade, as well as the new course and any grade earned.
