Guidelines for Timetable Changes - September 2020

Important Background Information:

Our detailed course planning process was completed before Spring Break when students entered their choices on the computer.  During the summer, several ongoing revisions were completed in consultation with the counsellor.

 

Because of Covid 19….

With the number of course choices and programs we offer, and the need to create and maintain Learning Groups, student schedules had to be re- adjusted within a VERY CONDENSED time period.

The timeline on timetable changes this year is EXTREMELY tight with the recent introduction of the Quarter system. 

 

Students will not have the luxury of “trying” classes out; we cannot compromise class bubbles. 

 

We want to respect the health and safety protocols in place for our community. At this time, regretfully there are no drop- ins to see your counsellor.

Week One

Tuesday, September 8th until Friday, September 11th

 

  • Students log into their MyEd Portal on Tuesday, September 8, 2020  to see their schedules.
  • If Students need to reset their MyEd Password, email magee@vsb.bc.ca .State your name, student #, and reason for email.
  • Counsellors are only able to review course changes for a very limited time and for the above stated reasons.
  • As in past years, counsellors may not be able to accommodate all course change requests.  
  • Students can check out Mr. Egilsson’s video information on how to read their schedule .
  • Counsellors will review schedules and Quarter 1 course request forms. Due to health and safety constraints, face to face appointments regretfully cannot be requested.
  • All requests for a course change MUST be made by submitting Course Change online form.
  • Counsellors will contact student only if more information is required.
  • Students may access updated schedules in their MyEd Portal.
  • If student’s request is approved, the updated schedule will be posted on the student’s MyEd portal.
  • Changing a class in Quarters 2, 3, or 4.
  • Changing teachers or to be in a friend’s class.

How do I request changing a course in Quarter 2,3,4? When can I make a face to face appointment with my counsellor?

Once the counsellors have completed the review of Quarter 1 schedules and requests, they will inform students of this next step.

We appreciate your understanding. Please know that even if you did not get the course change you wanted, and /or could not meet directly with your counsellor during this School Startup that the Magee counsellors are genuinely committed  to supporting you during  this unprecedented  year and truly hope to see you in person soon. 🤗
