Wildcat Counseling

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!

Important note about schedule change requests:

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this busy time of the school year.  Due to changes with regard to how schedule changes are processed, new limits regarding teacher-to-student daily contacts, and the volume of students who have attempted - or completed - advancement, the schedule change timeline has slowed significantly.  The DVHS Counseling Department is working as quickly and diligently as possible to process schedule changes. Again, thank you for your patience and understanding.

Elective Change Request

August 16- August 30, 2019

Requests for TEACHER or PERIOD changes will not be accepted.

Your schedule is based on the courses you requested in Spring 2019. Changes made via phone or email (now, or over the summer) will not be honored.

1.  Requests for teacher or period changes will not be accepted.
2.  Submit only one request per form; students may submit multiple forms.
3.  Students cannot ask to disregard the form once a form is submitted. (NO TAKE BACKS!)
4. Students understand that other periods may be moved in order to accommodate the course change request.  Every effort is made by the DVHS Counseling Department to minimize the number of classes moved during a schedule change.
