In place of the Certificate of Enrollment, DDS will accept a copy of students’ unofficial transcripts or report cards reflecting the students’ names and Walton High School as their attending school.
SCHEDULE CONCERNS – A list of the students’ requested courses for the 2020-21 school year will be mailed with the report card and unofficial transcript to the home address on file. The Master schedule was created based upon these requests. Any requests for schedule changes must be completed through the online waiver form process noted in the course letter between May 27th and June 5th. Email or phone requests will not be honored. Waiver requests will be considered based on the course availability in the Master Schedule and changes are not guaranteed.
SENIOR TRANSCRIPTS- College/NCAA – transcripts were sent electronically to the colleges listed in Naviance under “Attending Colleges” as well as to the additional schools/institutions requested directly to Ms. Schrenk. Final unofficial transcripts were also mailed with the report card to home addresses on file.
