It is VERY important that any change of sponsor rank, address, unit, telephone number, emergency contact information, or official email be reported to the Student Affairs Office (SAO) immediately. School records must reflect accurate and correct information at all times. This is also the school’s emergency contact information. Your accurate, official e-mail address is extremely important for speed of communication!
Students who transfer to our school from other accredited schools will receive credit from these schools at face value. In cases where a transfer is in the middle of a grading period, the work being done at the time of transfer will be averaged with the work completed here to determine the grade at the end of the current reporting period. Students must be in attendance at least 20 instructional days in order to grant credit.
Six elective credits are required for graduation and are courses that allow students flexibility in choosing subjects in which they have an interest to pursue. Elective courses are chosen after consultation with the counselor to meet a student’s future educational and vocational needs. Students should check with their counselor upon registration to discuss career plans and begin a 4-year graduation plan, including all necessary classes for graduation. For information about online classes or credit by examination, see your counselor.
A senior may request a partial schedule ONLY with a written parent request and administrative approval. A counselor will make sure that the student has all necessary credits for graduation but this must be worked out in advance. Partial schedules will be approved only if a student is currently employed or for a medical or family emergency.
Students have an opportunity to select courses for the entire school year during the Spring or upon registration. Parents, students, teachers and counselors are involved in the course selection process. The expectation is that through this process, thought and judgment are exercised in the careful selection of courses and alternatives. Once schedules are issued in the Fall, schedules can be changed ONLY if a student is in the wrong class or a teacher sees that a student is not properly placed. Requests for schedule changes for frivolous reasons (“I don’t like the teacher”, “I don’t like the course,” “I don’t need the course to graduate,” etc.) will not be honored. All changes must happen within the first 10 days of each semester. After the 10th day, students will receive a Withdrawal/Fail grade.
Persons other than authorized school officials will not have access to student records without the written permission of parent and/or student. Exceptions may be necessary when a student’s record is formally requested by an authorized investigative agency. Under provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act, schools are required to provide military recruiters access to the names, addresses and phone numbers of our high school students. Parents and students may request a non-disclosure form that will deny access to personal information by military recruiters. The form will be kept on file in the Student Affairs Office.
Active duty U.S. military members and full-time U.S. DoD civilian employees stationed overseas, are eligible for tuition-free enrollment. All others must pay tuition. DOD dependents that are authorized attendance in a DoDEA school may complete the current school year if the DOD sponsor is transferred, dies, or retires during the school year. The tuition rate is payable at the start of each semester. If additional information is required, please contact the Registrar at 0611-988-7872.

It is the responsibility of the parents or guardians to notify the school every time a student is absent.
