Scheduling Requirements

Students selecting a schedule must look not only at the graduation requirements but also at their Career Pathways and what will help them with their life after graduation.  Students may use their Educational Development Plan (EDP) at as a resource for selecting courses related to their career plans.  See your counselor if you have forgotten your username and password.

Career Pathways are large groups of careers that share similar characteristics and whose employment requirements call for many common interests, strengths, and competencies.  Career Pathways can assist you in finding your way among the thousands of different occupations available to you.  Following a career pathway makes it easier for you to identify career choices and can help you develop a plan on how to prepare for your chosen career.  Following are some examples of electives that would pertain to Career Pathways:

A student may repeat a class in which he or she received a poor grade.  The original grade will become a “Credit” and will be counted only as an elective.  The student will be given the second grade received for the class.  This must be pre-approved by the administration and the teacher.

All the courses listed in this catalog may not be offered every year.  A class will be scheduled only if enough students request it and if the Richmond High School budget permits it.

You will be placed in one of your alternative choices if too few students choose the class, if the class is not offered, or if too many students choose the class and there are no spaces remaining.

You will not be permitted to take any classes deemed inappropriate for you in the professional opinion of the Richmond staff without a parental conference and a waiver letter signed by your parent.

The counselor is available to provide guidance as needed.
