Pasadena ISD 2019-2020 Parent/Student Handbook

Schedule Changes p. 56:

Middle, Intermediate, and High School Counselors meet with students each spring to help guide them in choosing courses based on their academic needs and career interests. Care in selecting courses is vital because these choices determine the number of teachers needed on each campus and the number of sections built for each course. Students and parents are urged to make thoughtful selections.

In order to maintain balance in classroom numbers and to minimize disruptions to the academic process, students are not able to change elective classes. Limited exceptions apply. Students should refer to their counseling departments for campus guidelines and procedures. A student requiring a schedule change must pick up a Schedule change Request Form in the counseling office. The deadline for all schedule changes is ten (10) days after the start of each semester. Change requests received after the deadline will not be considered.
