Students and parents may complete a waiver application to move up or down a core level based on middle school teacher placement. Waivers require guardian signatures to move up or down a level which is contrary to the recommendation of the school. For example, he/she has been recommended for on-level 9th Lit and would like to challenge themselves and feels they can handle Honors 9th Lit. Or vice-versa, recommended for Honors World Geography and they prefer to take on-level World Geography. This is NOT to change an elective they have requested but would rather not take.
1. Starting February 9, 2023, students can review the KMHS course requests by logging into the online registration website found below. You will use your CCSD ID (student ID) and password. We encourage you to do this at home with your guardians.
2. Click on "Course Request" on the left side under Navigation. Your CORE and top ELECTIVE recommendations will be listed. Fall core classes are identified with an ending of "Y" and the Spring core classes with a "B" or "A." All elective classes will end with a "Y."
3. If you wish to change a core recommendation from your current teacher, please submit a WAIVER. These must be submitted online using the link below. This is the only time to submit a waiver.
This form is needed when a student would like to double up, during the same school year, in an Academic Core class. For example, he/she has taken their required English class the 1st semester and would like to take another English class the 2nd semester. They may do this for any number of reasons, such as, getting ahead and challenging themselves, attempting to graduate early or trying to catch up if they failed an academic core class and need to repeat it. This is NOT to change an elective they have requested but would rather not take
