***  CHS supports a balanced experience, and we want our students to be successful and healthy human beings. It is essential to have conversations with your student(s) regarding course selection considering academic rigor, overall workload, and additional factors such as: clubs, sports, transportation to and from school, employment, family responsibilities, and mental health. 

Any requests to change courses after the March 31 deadline are not guaranteed.  In order to request a change after the deadline, students must complete the following steps:

  • Pick up a Course Request form from the counseling office (forms will be available beginning May 1st)
  • Complete the Course Request form including a parent/guardian signature approving of the change.
  • Submit completed forms to your counselor between May 18 - May 20

***Email requests to change courses will not be accepted***
