We want to inform you of the scheduling process that each school site is currently going through.
In an effort to be transparent and open in our communication, we want to inform you of the scheduling process that each school site is currently going through. If you are not new to QHHS, you may remember this very message that is sent twice a year. During the first three weeks of the new school year and the first two weeks of the second semester of each school year, many student schedules will be changed.
Essentially, there are three reasons schedules would change. First, schedules need to be changed due to class sections being either added or closed due to over or under-enrollment. Secondly, sections need to be balanced to adjust for classes that are over or under contracted class caps. Specifically this school year, we have 4 mid-year retirements and another teacher accept a position outside of our school. This creates the need for even more class changes.
During the next few days, these class changes will take effect and some students will have their schedules adjusted. New schedules will be delivered to students who have schedule adjustments. This is a necessary, albeit frustrating, process for our students. We understand that having teacher or period changes is inconvenient and I ensure you we do not take this lightly. If a class change was made, it had to be made. If you have a schedule change, we cannot change your class back because quite simply, the class you were removed from no longer exists or cannot be made due to contract caps. We will not, and would not, change any schedule unless it was absolutely necessary.
- Many schedules will change over the course of this week. This is a normal and annual process at every school. Once again, we understand the schedule changes are frustrating, however, they must be done in order to provide the best possible educational experiences for all students.
- We are unable to move a student back to their old schedules. We would not make the change if we didn't have to. Those who had a schedule changed had to be changed for one of the above reasons.
We appreciate your understanding and we apologize in advance for any inconvenience as we work to complete schedule modifications as quickly as possible to provide the best educational environment for your student.
