Bella Vista Course Change Policy
Bella Vista schedules students into classes based on course requests, prior grades, and teacher recommendations. Students and parents may request a course change through their counselor within the first ten (10) school days of the semester. A student choosing to drop a course after the ten day window will receive a drop "F" grade on their transcript. If a teacher identifies misplacement beyond ten days, s/he may initiate a level change by the end of the first grading period. The student's grade will transfer to the new course.
Criteria for requesting a schedule change:You are enrolled in a class that you have already passed or taken and do not need.
You took the class in summer school and passed it.
