Class add/drop window opens Monday, closes Friday

The splitting of high schools has sparked a lot of mystery surrounding the upcoming 2023-2024 school year. Gretna East students are asking a lot of questions, and there aren’t many answers. One question that can be answered is “How can I change my schedule?”

Starting tomorrow through July 28, students will be able to request to add or drop a class from their schedules. Students are able to access the add/drop Google Form through their respective counseling Google Classroom.

However, before requesting a change, students should know that there can be some potential obstacles when it comes to changing a schedule. Requesting a change could result in a student’s whole schedule changing. Be aware students may not get the changes they want.

“Usually, the more electives in the student’s registration (and junior/senior electives) make it difficult to make changes,” Gretna East counselor Brandon Shostak wrote in an email. “We do make it clear, in the form, that once a request is submitted they have talked to their parent(s) and agree that this request might make a change in how classes are organized (if the change is possible).”

If a student misses the deadline to add/drop a class, they may be out of luck. Certain circumstances may allow a late request, but counselors say that students should not count on it.

“We give a week’s worth of time in order to fill out the drop/add form, so beyond the deadline, we are not able to make changes,” Shostak said. “There are extenuating circumstances with any situation, but we make those decisions on a case-by-case basis.”

Students may view the counseling webpage to see contact information for their counselor, review graduation requirements and browse the curriculum handbook to see what courses are offered and their descriptions.
