What if I have changed my mind about a class I registered to take?
Students will have the opportunity to participate in a process referred to as Drop/Add.
What is Drop/Add?
DROP/ADD is an opportunity for students to request to drop a course and add another. There is no guarantee that we can grant the request. All request will be examined and made based upon current scheduling factors.
What do I do if I am interested in Drop/Add?
Fill out the Drop/Add form. The form will be available on line soon or available at Drop/Add. Come to Mill Creek High School Curriculum Office on Thursday, July 25th from 9:00am – 12:00pm (Face to Face)
How will the process work?
Determine if the class you would like to ADD is available. There is no guarantee that we can grant the request. On July 25th you will submit your request to a staff member and wait while the change is made. Please plan for at least 2 hours from start to finish depending on the length of the line. You will receive an authorization ticket that verifies that one class has been added and one class has been dropped.
· Drop/Add is a first come, first serve basis. There are no guarantees that the classes you want will be available when you make your request.
· This is the only opportunity in which students will be permitted to make a schedule change request. Please refer to the Curriculum & Instruction page of Mill Creek’s website if you have questions regarding our schedule change policy.
· Specific course openings, as well as the time, dates, and location for drop/add are on the reverse side of this letter.
