Request to Exit PreAP/AP/Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment Courses


Students may submit a request for a level change during the following times:
- August 1st through 4:00 PM the Tuesday before the week school starts (August 13, 2019).
- Exit Window will open after the first 3 weeks IPR (Sept 6) and close at the end of the day on Sept 27th. (DROP REQUEST FORMS ARE  AVAILABLE IN THE COUNSELING OFFICE.)
 - The last five days of the first semester (Dec 16-20, 2019).

Exit Guidelines for PreAP and AP Courses
1. To exit a PreAP or AP course, parent/teacher/student conference must occur, and the student must confer with the counselor and principal or principal’s designee.
2. A student that exits out of a PreAP/AP course will retain this grade in the new course. If a student exits with a grade below 70 in the original course, this may impact their UIL eligibility. General Information 12
 3. Depending on graduation requirements and credits needed, students attempting to drop an AP or PreAP course for which there is no academic equivalent may result in the student remaining in the course until the conclusion of the Semester.
4. Exiting a PreAP/AP course prior to the end of a semester will result in loss of weighted credit for the course.

In order to exit an advanced course, the following must occur:
- Attend documented tutorials and have all assignments completed.
- Parent/Teacher/Student conference.
- Parent-student conference with campus administration/counselor.
 - Complete the campus request form and submit it by the designated due date/time.

Requests that meet the established guidelines stated above can only be approved if there is a class available and the change does not exceed the class size limit designated by administration.
