Class Registration & Scheduling

Treasure Mountain Junior High courses and number of of course sections offered within each subject area are based on budget, staffing, student interest, and enrollment projections. Our master schedule strives to ensure equity and fairness to all students and to maintain balanced class loads for teachers.

Class Registration

Current students register for their next-year classes in March. To register for classes, students will fill out and submit a Class Registration Form, which includes their first-choice class selections, alternate class selections, a parent signature, and any teacher signatures required by course prerequisites. We are not able to offer the option of requesting classes with specific teachers or at specific times. We expect students to accept and complete the courses they select during class registration, including their alternates.

Schedule Changes

Once the school year is underway, students may request a schedule change in the Counseling Office within the first FIVE DAYS of the SEMESTER only. There will be NO changes after Midterm. Not all schedule change requests can be granted due to full class sizes, class availability, schedule disruption, etc

It’s important to understand that the availability and staffing of courses is based upon master scheduling activities that happen in the spring prior to the start of the school year. Our counselors spend a considerable amount of time counseling students on the courses and credits needed for graduation, while identifying individual student interests and goals. We work very hard to give students their first-choices, however we may experience scheduling conflicts that require us to place students into their alternate choices. When conflicts cannot be resolved with alternates, counselors will contact the student to find an agreeable solution. Once the master schedule is finalized and student schedules are generated, it is difficult to make schedule changes because most classes will already be at or near capacity. Class capacities will NOT be overfilled. We anticipate minimal options for schedule changes.

Parent Release and Religion Release

Parent Release is an exception to the state’s mandatory attendance statute that allows students to be released for part of the school day for regularly-occurring off-campus activities, with written permission of their parent or legal guardian. Parents are responsible for their student during release time. No transportation services are provided during release time. During release time, students may NOT be on any PCSD campus and must leave within five minutes of the bell. Parent Release during periods 2 and 3 is discouraged. On the occasion that a student wishes to be on campus during their release time, they must have prior approval from an administrator or the attendance office. If release students are being disruptive, they will be asked to leave, and repeated violations may result in trespassing citations, safe school violations, denied participation in school activities, and/or other consequences as determined by administration. If release time is requested in place of a core graduation requirement, the parent is responsible for the instruction for that requirement. If a parent wishes to rescind Parent Release during the school year, the student’s class schedule is subject to course availability. Seats in classes are not reserved for students who wish to cancel release time, and classes will not be overfilled.
