Student Schedules for 2012-2013 Year to Be Released by Early June

Schedules for the 2012-2013 school year will be made available to students by the end of the first week of June, according to assistant principal James Farnen. Along with a homeroom meeting during which students will be given hard copies of their schedules, they will be sent out in the mail, as well as posted on the Home Access Center.

“It’s going to be the same format as last year,” Farnen said.

He said that the master schedule—which takes into consideration student course requests, budget restraints, and department approval—is near completion. Once this is made, each student will be “pushed through” the system and be assigned a schedule.

“We want all of our kids to have an official schedule in hand, with all their conflicts worked out by the time they leave school at the end of June,” Farnen said, adding that the guidance department will eventually be available for students to clear up any potential scheduling conflicts. “We’re hoping to provide the best possible schedules, and to meet all of our student needs.”

Even though AP exam season is not yet over, some students already anticipate receiving their schedules for next year.

“I’m excited, because I want to know if any of my friends are in the same classes as me, and what teachers I’ll have,” Yael Dror ’15 said.

Riley Gonnet ’13 also looks forward to finding out who he will have classes with during his senior year, and does not worry about any conflicts that may arise with his schedule being computer-generated.

“I know my guidance counselor will help me fix any problem I might have. I have Mr. Lawrence, and he’s the man,” Gonnet said.
