Many students have had that one teacher or class that they just can’t stand or one that they just don’t need. For many students, mid-year transfers are the most viable option in order to get the best scholastic experiences. However, with this influx of requests, not all students can obtain the classes that they want.
Counselor April Olson handles the schedules of students with the last names starting with A-De. Out of Olson’s 375 students that she is responsible for, about thirty of them have requested some form of a class or schedule change at the time of the interview. This process can be complicated by new students transferring into the school, the large size of the classes, and the existing schedules of the students. “It all kind of clusters together and creates a puzzle that is much larger than one student,” said Olson.
The process of rescheduling is no short task. “[The whole process] could take about a week or two or even up to the second week into the semester to even look at every student,” said Olson. Overall, the whole process of scheduling is harder than one would think and is much more than just submitting a form.
If you want to change your schedule, make sure to talk to your counselor as soon as possible.
