When a student fails to meet the prerequisites for taking a sequential course, the student is obligated to take an alternative course. In some extenuating circumstances, parents may formally request an override of the school's recommendation or eligibility requirement for a course. In this instance, the student is allowed to take the preferred course with the understanding that the student will remain in said course for the entire school year. In the case of leveled courses, students may only override one level above the teacher recommendation.

After having a discussion with the recommending teacher, please click here to access the SOCIAL STUDIES OVERRIDE FORM. Once you SUBMIT the form, you will receive an email confirmation with further instructions. ALL OVERRIDE REQUESTS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MARCH 17, 2017.

The goal of a history and social sciences curriculum is to enable students by systematic studies to acquire the knowledge, skill and judgment to continue to learn for themselves; to participate intelligently, justly and responsibly in civic life, and in deliberation about local national and international issues; and to avail themselves of historical and cultural resources - historic sites, museums, parks libraries, multimedia information sources- wherever they may live or travel.
