• VIII.     WITHDRAWAL FROM COURSES

    A student who is carrying the minimum required number of credits may not withdraw from a course at any time unless permission to carry a reduced load is secured from the principal. A student who is carrying more than the minimum required number of credits may withdraw from the additional course(s). If the withdrawal is made in the first six weeks for a semester course and the last school day of November for a full-year course, no record of this withdrawal will be made on the student's record. After this six- week period for semester courses and the last school day of November for full-year courses, WP (withdrew passing) or WF (withdrew failing) will be entered on the records. A student who wishes to withdraw from a course must consult his/her school guidance counselor. Additionally, the student must have permission from his/her parents to withdraw. After 50% of the course is complete a student can no longer drop the course; semester course (1 marking period) full year course (1 semester).
