  • Level Changes: SDUHSD course add/drop guidelines (four-weeks at the beginning of each semester to address level changes in English and math). Level changes are dependent on class space/seat availability.  
  • Grades: Parents are encouraged to visit teacher websites and Aeries regularly with their student to monitor progress and to provide encouragement and support.
  • Academic support: If your student is regularly accessing supports on campus and is still struggling, please contact Laura Martin or Duncan Brown, counselors.
