Freshman Registration Leads to Scheduling Conflicts

Ten students are in the counseling center. One by one, they get called in. As they slowly trickle out, in flows 10 more to replace the 10 lost. In this case, the reason for the counseling center’s popularity is not to grant a simple change of classes, but rather to balance irregular class sizes. Students are getting their schedules rearranged in an effort to mend the situation.

According to Vice Principal Josh Hamblin, who is overseeing this process, it is not that uncommon for high schools to have last minute schedule changes because the number of students enrolled are not final until the first few days of school. “I’ve worked in high schools for about 18 years and it’s not an annual occurrence but it definitely occurs when grades come in and they’re either a little bit bigger or a little bit smaller than expected.” Two days before classes officially began, 60 freshmen were registered.

Of all the things that cannot be predicted for certain, the number of incoming students the next school year is one of them. Projections for student demographics are made each year prior and the following school year’s master schedule is based off of that data. However, there are less upperclassmen enrolled than anticipated, while the freshmen class is approximately 50 students higher than what was projected for. “[50 kids] doesn’t sound like a lot, but 50 kids every class period is a pretty big difference,” said Hamblin.

As a result, freshman core classes are overfilled and other classes are impacted because of it. Because of his pre-calculus class being folded, junior Stanton Hayes is now being taught by Andrea Hicklin, rather than Jesse Gomez, whose class he was initially in. “It’s kind of rough because it’s the third week of school, so I had to know how the [new] classes run,” said Hayes. “It’s fine, I’m adapting well. I’m catching up.”
