Scheduling Process for SY2023
February 2022 – AP Applications
AP Applications will be released to students and families for all available AP Courses for SY2023 by February 7th. Please note: any course that does not receive enough applications may not run in the upcoming school year.
Interested students will be required to attend an AP Information Session for each department they are applying to a course within. Details about Information Sessions may be found on the AP Information Flyer linked below. If students are unable to attend the session, they are responsible to meet individually with the appropriate AP Teacher depending on the course(s) they are applying for.
AP Applications are due by Friday, February 18th at 3:00pm unless otherwise stated. Students may download the appropriate AP Application documents (which include instructions for what needs to be submitted for each application) from the AP Information Flyer linked below.
Students will submit each AP Application in a Google Form linked on the AP Information Flyer. A separate submission is required for each AP Course a student is applying for.
February 2022 – Course Placements by Teachers
By the end of February, teachers will make recommendations to the CMIT Scheduling Team for Core Subjects (Math, English, Social Studies, Science, Language, Technology) for their students.
In early March, Counselors will send course placements to students (including AP decisions). At that time, families will be able to appeal course placements if necessary.
March-April 2022 – Course Placement Appeal Requests
All Course Placement appeals must be requested through the SY23 Course Placement Appeal Request Form. Please note, this form is only accessible using student CMIT email addresses, so if a parent/guardian is requesting a Course Placement appeal, they must work with their student to complete the form by April 1, 2022 at 3:00pm, at which time the Request Form will be closed.
For Course Placement appeals to move up a level (i.e. from Honors to AP, or an appeal to go to a more rigorous course):
- Rising 9th Grade Students: A member of the Scheduling/Administrative Team at the High School will contact the student and parent/guardian by early April to discuss the process for appeal, which may include a meeting, a diagnostic assessment, a writing sample, etc.
- Rising 10th-12th Grade Students: A member of the Scheduling/Administrative Team at the High School will contact the student and parent/guardian to set up a Course Placement Appeal Meeting with the student, parent/guardian, Administrative, Teacher, and appropriate Department Chair. During that meeting, the team will discuss the best placement for the student. If the student and parent/guardian are not in agreement with the team decision and are still interested in moving to the more rigorous course, the student and parent/guardian will be asked to sign a Course Override Form.
- Please note: students cannot be placed in courses for which they do not meet the county/course prerequisites.
For Course Placement appeals to move down a level (i.e. from AP to Honors or from Honors to on-level):
- The student’s parent/guardian must email the student’s assigned School Counselor by May 1st, 2022 requesting the decrease in course rigor.
- After that deadline, students will need to wait until the beginning of the school year to request to drop down a course level. Moving down a level will be dependent on space in an equivalent class. If there is not space in an equivalent class, the student may be required to complete the course through the Educational Online Program (EOP) or through Summer School.
- 9th & 10th Grade Counselor: Mr. Conde (email@example.com)
- 11th & 12th Grade Counselor: Ms. Gaudette (firstname.lastname@example.org)
March-April 2022 – Initial Scheduling by School Counselors and Abbreviated Schedule Requests
Once your student’s Counselor gets the go-ahead from the Administration Team, they will begin making student schedules based on the Course Placements. This initial scheduling will include core subjects only. Electives will be placed at a later date.
During this period, rising Seniors will also be able to submit their initial requests for Abbreviated Schedules as long as they have fulfilled enough of their Graduation requirements to do so. Seniors are required to take at least four credits throughout their senior year (Fall and Spring), at least one of which needs to be taken at CMIT. These four courses must include: Senior Math, Senior English, College Summit 12, Elective Credit. Any senior who has unmet requirements for graduation at the start of their senior year will be scheduled for those courses as well. Eligible seniors may request to take their Senior Math, Senior English, and/or Elective credit through Dual Enrollment. All CMIT Seniors are required to take College Summit 12 at CMIT.
Rising juniors who are in the ITEC program may also request an abbreviated schedule. Rising ITEC juniors must take at least five courses at CMIT. Rising ITEC juniors will be informed of whether an abbreviated schedule will remove their ability to take other courses (i.e. certain AP courses), and students will be able to decide whether they prefer to keep a full schedule or follow through with an abbreviated schedule.
SY23 Abbreviated Schedule / Dual Enrollment Replacement Form Due Friday, March 18th at 3:00pm.
All Abbreviated Schedule and Dual Enrollment Replacement Request forms are available for download and must be submitted to the Google Form above.
April 2022 – Dual Enrollment Applications for Summer and Fall
Eligible students will be able to submit applications for the Summer 2022 and Fall 2022 terms.
11th Grade Students all have full schedules (with the exception of 11th grade ITEC students), and therefore cannot schedule any classes during school hours.
Most 12th Grade Students are given the opportunity to have an abbreviated schedule, but since there is no guarantee whether we can work around Dual Enrollment courses, students are encouraged to apply for courses outside of school hours, or Online sections. If CMIT schedules cannot accommodate approved Dual Enrollment classes, students will need to drop their Dual Enrollment course or change the section of their course.
April 2022 – Elective Preference Forms
Elective Preferences will be shared through an Elective Preference Google Form. Students who would like to have a say in their elective preferences must complete this Elective Preference Form by June 1.
May-June 2022 – Tentative Schedule Distribution and Adjustment
Student schedules will be completed in draft form between May and June 2022 and as each grade level is completed, draft schedules will be sent to students and their families. Please note, these schedules are not final drafts as changes may need to occur over the summer. No elective change requests will be accepted until the Fall semester begins.
Fall 2022 – Elective Change Requests / AP Course Drop Requests
Elective Changes may be requested in the designated time period at the start of the school year. Instructions will be given at that time.
Students looking to drop an AP Course will be permitted to do so within the first 20 school days. Students looking to drop an AP Course must have completed their Summer Assignment in Full and demonstrate a high level of effort prior to requesting to drop the Course. In order to drop a course, the student must request a meeting with their AP Teacher, Counselor, Parent/Guardian, and Administrator, during which the team will discuss the most appropriate next steps. Please note: a request does not guarantee that the course will be dropped.
Please contact Ms. Gaudette if you have any questions about the placement process.
