SCHEDULE CHANGE POLICY
Schedule changes can be made as quickly as possible the first few days of school. Students need to fill out a schedule change request form and submit it to the counselor or office. However, all schedule changes will cost you $10. This fee will only be waived if the school made an error that needs to be fixed. Examples of that would be: 8th grade student being scheduled in a 7th grade science class, student being scheduled in math for 2 class periods, or student placed in wrong Spanish level class. These types of issues will be fixed free of charge. All other reasons for a change will cost $10.

FOREIGN LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS
I have talked to several parents who had misconceptions about foreign language requirements. In the state of Utah, foreign language is not a requirement for graduating high school (unless a specific charter high school has that written into their charter). Foreign language classes are great for students to take, but again they are not required. When taken in high school (9th-12th grade) foreign language classes fall under elective credits. If you would like to look at the local school districts' requirements, please click on the tab "Preparing for High School" and click on "High School Credit Requirements." If you are going to a high school in the Ogden School District, you will notice that it has 3 types of diplomas: Honors, Traditional, and Basic. The Honors Diploma is the only diploma that requires 2 years of a foreign language.
There are certain colleges that require a student to have taken at least 2 years of a foreign language in high school. The University of Utah is the only college in Utah that has that requirement. Students planning to go out of state should check with those individual colleges/universities. There also may be certain scholarships that have a foreign language requirement. One example is the Regents' Scholarship
