Recap of the Scheduling Process

Last April, rising 10th–12th graders signed up for courses using the online course request forms, which listed all courses available to students by grade level. Incoming 9th graders submitted their course requests through the Admissions Office. All students are automatically enrolled in common courses that are graduation requirements (for example: BME, Biology, CMA, D&T, 9th–11th grade English, 10th–11th grade History, and Chemistry). 9th graders may request a Performing Arts course, which will be assigned as space and schedules permit. When selecting from Performing, Technical, and Visual Arts, as well as Science and BlendEd electives, students ranked their choices for courses in order of preference.
 
Student preferences (as expressed in their online course request forms) were used to build the grid of classes (the master list of when each course is offered) in such a way that we can maximize the potential for students to be enrolled in the courses of their choice.
 
As you know, LWHS offers a wide array of interesting and challenging courses. In building the schedule we’ve done everything possible to provide as many first choices to as many students as possible. When there were too many students signed up for a course as a first choice, we then went to our stated priorities (for example: 10th graders need to be enrolled in a Technical Arts course so they have priority for first placement). Scheduling policies can be found in the Academic Guidebook.

All students are required to have six graded courses each semester, with at least five academic courses. 11th and 12th graders may request a TA or Independent Study (IS) as a 7th course, however a TA/IS is not considered one of the six required courses.
