If the student or parent does not agree with the recommendation, the parent may contact the student’s lead teacher to set up a conference to sign a waiver. If a waiver is signed, the student may not withdraw from the class without penalty. CHOOSING COURSES Students should choose electives carefully considering their IGP Students should choose alternates in case there are conflicts or the course is not offered. The course guide, with a description of the courses, is posted on the school’s webpage www.richland2.org/bh .

All seniors must be enrolled in the equivalent of at least 2 block classes each semester to be considered a student at BHS. This does not include virtual classes, non-credited classes, or work-based learning classes. MEETING WITH COUNSELOR During your appointment with your counselor, the counselor will review your requests to make sure that you have included the necessary requirements to keep you on track for graduation as well as help you get into the college of your choice. You will also review your IGP at that time BUILDING THE MASTER SCHEDULE The Master Schedule is built based on the student requests. Therefore, it is extremely important that you request the classes that you intend to take. A course may not be offered if enough students do not request it. You are not guaranteed a course because you requested it. Counselors will make sure that you have what you need for graduation. Upper classmen will have first priority for courses needed for graduation. SCHEDULING STUDENTS In scheduling students, the computer will give us the conflicts that may occur based on your requests. The courses are placed based on the least number of conflicts. It is close to impossible for no conflicts to occur. Students/parents may not choose teachers. We do not change schedules based on teacher requests. DISTRIBUTING SCHEDULES Schedules will be distributed during orientation. Dates and times will be mailed during the summer.
