Articulation and Schedule Changes

WMS Schedule Change, Elective Change, and Teacher Request Policies


Schedule Changes

Schedule changes will only be made for students who are in an incorrect class.  This may be an elective class, a change in the level of an academic class, or if a student is missing a required class or has a class duplicated.  Schedule changes will not be made for students requesting a period change, nor will schedule changes be made for students or parents who are requesting a teacher change.


If a student or parent has specific and current concerns about a particular teacher:

  • The teacher should be contacted directly by the student and/or parent, the concerns should be discussed and a mutually agreed upon resolution should be attempted.
  • If a resolution cannot be reached, or the problem continues, the Vice Principal Ms. Kent should be contacted.

Elective Changes

The following policy will be used when students request a change of an elective class during the school year.


Requests to transfer to a new elective will only be accepted during the FIRST TEN (10) DAYS of the school year: A student may request to change his/her elective class during the first two weeks of school by completing a "Request to See Counselor" form in the main office. The counselor may approve the transfer to any elective class where an opening exists, as long as the change will not greatly impact their current schedule. 


There will be NO elective class changes for the remainder of the school year.


Teacher Requests

Requests to have (or not to have) specific teachers will not be taken or considered. 

All teachers, counselors, and administrators are in agreement and will be following this policy. The only exceptions to the above policy are: 

  • A student (not a sibling or a friend) has personally had that teacher previously and is requesting to not have that teacher again.
  • A student has the same teacher for 2 different subjects, and is requesting to change one of them to a different teacher

NOTE:  All teacher changes under this policy must be requested within the first week of the school year.
