General Enrollment Information
In the spring of the eighth grade year, each student is required to develop a 4-year educational plan. The student must submit a copy signed by a parent to a counselor before he or she will be allowed to enroll. Each year, the student’s homeroom advisor will help the student to update the plan. At Parents’ Night, February 12 & 13 the student’s parent(s) or guardian meet with the advisor to discuss the plan and a proposed schedule. The student is not allowed to enroll for the upcoming school year until a parent has met with the homeroom advisor to discuss and approve revisions to the 4-year plan and the proposed schedule of classes.
• Each student is individually responsible for meeting graduation requirements. If a student fails a semester of a required course, he or she must repeat the semester until a passing grade is received.
• In most required courses, students are not allowed to enroll in the next level of a course until the prerequisite has been completed with a passing grade.
• Seniors who are deficient in credits to the extent that they cannot graduate on time with their class, may be eligible for the MO Options/GED Program. Students who complete this program receive a MO Options/General Educational Diploma (GED) and may participate in regular graduation ceremony and activities. Interested students should contact a counselor for details.
• When a student transfers credit from another school or from another program, transcripts are evaluated on an individual basis. Students currently enrolled at WCHS are encouraged to seek the approval of a counselor before pursuing credit from any institution other than the Webb City R-7 School District.
• Students are not allowed to drop full-year courses after the first semester unless unusual and/or extenuating circumstances exist and the request is approved by the principal.
• Students who drop a class after the first two weeks of a semester will receive a semester grade of “F” for that course.
• Most classes will be filled with seniors, juniors, sophomores, and freshman in that order.
• The following classes may be repeated for credit: Band courses, Choir courses, PE I, PE II, Physical Training, ROTC, Library Assistant, Leadership, Debate & Theatre Competition, Office Applications, Publications, Journalism, Current Events, and Multimedia.
