Waiver Information

It is recommended to follow the recommendations made by the grade 8 teachers. These recommendations are made with knowledge of the student as well as the requirements of the CHS courses. If a student decides to waive into a higher level a request for a waiver form must be made to the supervisor of the department. Supervisor Contact Information Can Be Found Here.

  • A student who waives into a course must remain in that course for the first 25% of semester 1. The ability to drop to a lower level is dependent upon the availability of open seats. The grade that the student earned in the higher level course follows the student to the new course. 
  • Waivers may be requested beginning March 13 and must be signed and returned to your CMS counselor by March 27 at 3:00 p.m.
  • A second waiver window will open from May 21 - May 31. This is after the master schedule has been built. Waivers will be subject to the availability of open seats during this window.
