Schedule ​Changes

Schedule changes can be discussed during student Orientation.  Counselors will be available to assist you at that time.   After Orientation, ALL schedule changes must be done online using the 2022-23 Sonora High School Course Request Change Form. Students may only request schedule changes using the Google form beginning August 15th.  This form may be submitted once and can be accessed only by using the student's FJUHSD email. This is the student's nine-digit ID number, for example,  Any request submitted via email will not be approved.  If you have emailed your counselor, please see a counselor in person at Orientation, or resubmit your request using the 2022-23 Sonora High School Course Request Change Form.


Leveling Down or Up

After the first week of school, students must complete the Honors/AP/IB Level Up/Down Teacher Conversation Form, which will be available in the Guidance Office.  You may also find our school rules and regulations regarding course changes and leveling guidelines in our Student Handbook as well as Board Policy. 


Seniors Requesting Free Periods

Seniors who are on track for graduation and received a CAASPP score of 3 or 4 “Meets and Exceeds” in the subjects: English and Math may request to have a free period. Free periods are only available in periods 1 and 6. Classes that will take a student off A-G eligibility will not be dropped per AB 1012. Students should email their counselors to request a free period. If the free period is approved, students must schedule a meeting with themselves, their parents, and an administrator (APPS or Principal) to fill out the necessary paperwork. Free periods cannot occur after the last day of the first quarter of the semester as per Board Policy. After the first quarter, students drop a course with the letter grade of “F”. FJUHSD does not recommend students take free periods as it can affect college acceptance, competitiveness, and/or readiness.


Counselor Appointments

Please note that counselors can not schedule individual appointments until after the second week of school when student schedule changes are resolved.  We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
