Opens January 16th at 7:00 a.m. and due Friday, January 20th at 2:50 p.m.
Our priority during the scheduling process is to assign each student the courses that they requested. When we are unable to schedule a student into a course that they requested, then we use the student's alternative courses listed. From time to time a valid reason to deviate from a course requested arises and that is the purpose of this form.
Students in grades 9 - 12 seeking to change their schedule for a valid reason must completely fill out and submit this form prior to Friday, January 20, 2023 at 2:50 pm.
Teacher preference is NOT a valid reason to request a schedule change. The following reasons are valid reasons for a course/schedule change from a student's original course request list:
1. Student's schedule is incomplete.
2. Student failed a course that needs to be retaken.
3. Student is scheduled for the same course multiple times in a semester.
4. Student has taken and passed this course already (during school year, summer school, or testing out exam).
5. Student is scheduled in a course out of sequence.
6. Student needs to make a change in course level.
7. Student is a senior and needs complete a graduation requirement.
8. Student was assigned a course not requested.
IF you meet any of the criteria above, please complete this Google Form. All schedule change requests will then be reviewed by administration for approval prior to any schedule changes occurring. Once a change is made, we cannot change it back. One change may affect your whole schedule, including a change in your teacher in any class. Reworking the majority of a schedule for a request will not be possible.
The high school course description book is available on the BHHS Website:
Post Secondary Guide
The BHHS Post Secondary Guide is intended for students to begin planning for college or other post high school graduation options. The task of planning for life after high school may seem overwhelming; however, we hope that using this tool will provide parents, guardians, and students some insight and a clearer understanding of the college applications process and the preparation for various post secondary options.
