On August 20th, student schedules are viewable online in Power School or for pick up on mini-registration day. All students need to have 6 Richland High School classes. If you need to make a change to your 1st semester schedule, please sign up for an appointment on your assigned counselor’s clipboard during mini-registration (clipboards will be located at a table in the café). After that, the clipboards will be in the office. Counselors’ appointments fill quickly. So, signing up sooner is better than later. Schedule changes will be made for incorrect placement in classes, missing classes, or to fill an open period in your schedule. Schedule changes WILL NOT be made for teacher requests, lunch changes, or class changes to be with friends. (Second semester schedule changes begin in October.)
We look forward to a wonderful school year!
