Schedule Changes:


Any schedule change requests must be submitted via the online form that will be available on the DVHS Counseling website when we return to school. We will not take requests via phone or email. The only schedule changes made during the first week of school (August 13th – 17th) will be for the following reasons:

  • A required high school course is missing (e.g.: English is not on student’s schedule)
  • There is a hole in the student’s schedule (e.g.: Student does not have a course in period 2)
  • Incorrect level placement (e.g.: Student is enrolled in Spanish 3, but should be in Spanish 2.
  • Dropping an elective to go from a 7-period to a 6-period day.

The Schedule Change Request Form for electives will be available starting August 20th.



We hope you have a delightful summer!
