How to Withdraw from a Course Before the End of the Semester

All requests for a student to be withdrawn from a course shall be made in writing, signed by a parent/guardian, and turned in to the counseling department by the end of the 15th school day of the semester. If a student is withdrawn after the 15th school day of the semester, the student’s transcript will reflect the course and a grade of withdrawal passing (WP) or withdrawal failing (WF) for the semester. These designations (WP and WF) are not considered in Grade Point Average calculations. A parent/guardian must file a written request for such consideration with the building principal, and that request must clearly indicate the extenuating circumstances to justify a withdrawal. For additional procedures, please refer to Lynchburg City School Board Policies and Administrative Regulations 6-58.
