2022-2023 Elective Course Change Request at Waubonsie Valley

Reported by on 5/13/22

It is that time of year again when students have the opportunity to request an elective course change for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year. Beginning 7am on Monday May 16th through 3pm on Friday May 27th only, students can submit a request to change their elective courses. The Elective Course Request Google form will start accepting requests on Monday, May 16th. Requests via email or phone will not be accepted. Please note that if you are dropping a full-year course, then your replacement should fill two semesters. Course level change requests will not be accepted by school counselors.

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 from a student IPSD account will be considered; emailed change of mind requests will not be accepted. Parents/guardians should work with their student to submit a change of mind request.

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 an academic level concern if an extenuating circumstance has interrupted their student’s academic journey. Department chairs and teachers should be consulted before requesting a level change. Please contact the appropriate academic department chair, not your school counselor, if your request involves a level change. School 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.

The deadline to complete and submit the elective course request form is 3pm on Friday, May 27th, 2022. Please know that requests are not guaranteed as they will depend on course and seat availability.
