Student Schedules: 2020-2021 Course Verification
Reported by firstname.lastname@example.org on 5/11/20
School counselors at Waubonsie Valley have begun the schedule building and review process for the 2020-2021 school year. It is now time for students in the Class of 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024 to review their course requests for next school year. Timely review of course requests is important to guarantee a complete schedule next fall.
Class of 2021 – Class of 2024: Verification is done through Home Access Center (HAC) by clicking on the schedule link and scroll to the bottom of the page. You will be able to view the courses your student will take next year. This is not your student’s daily schedule. The finalized schedule will be viewable in mid-August through HAC. Please note that some course selections may have changed since January due to course cancellations or conflicts between two course requests. Students impacted by these changes have been contacted directly by their school counselor.
Important Information regarding Course review
ERROR - If there is an error in your course request-verification: (e.g. should have Physics, but have Biology) contact your assigned school counselor immediately.
ELECTIVE COURSE CHANGE REQUEST
The elective change request window is Monday 5/18 – Friday 5/22. Students requesting an elective change must do so using the linked Google Form. Students must be signed into their IPSD google account in order to submit an official request. Only Google Form submissions will be considered; emailed change of mind requests will not be accepted.
Please be aware that several factors affect course availability and a student’s final schedule. New enrollments, schedule changes because of summer school courses, and course balancing for reasonable class sizes are some of the factors Waubonsie must take into account. When course seats are limited, priority will be given to upperclassmen who have fewer opportunities left to take the course. Submitted elective change requests will be processed on a SEAT-AVAILABLE basis and are not guaranteed. Our goal is to have each of our students in the classes they requested for next year.

Level placements in core classes were completed in February and will not be part of the change request process at Waubonsie Valley. We will, however, speak with families that have a level concern if an extenuating circumstance has interrupted their student’s academic journey. Department chairs and teachers are aware of the impact the Covid-19 Remote Learning may have had on students. As such, teachers will work to adjust curriculum and provide time for reteaching previous material at the start of the school year. Please contact the appropriate academic department chair, not your counselor, if your request involves a level change. Counselors will not process any level changes without academic department chair approval. Department chair contact information can be found on the Faculty & Staff section of the WVHS website.
Thank you for your partnership and your patience with this process. Your student’s final schedule will be available for viewing in HAC in mid-August.
