Textbook Ordering Instructions
Students are able to purchase their books through any textbook provider desired. This can include our school provider, EdTech, or an alternative service such as Amazon.

Visit the Textbooks webpage for a full list of required textbooks and ordering information.

Student Schedule Change Requests
Student Schedule Change Requests Should students need to make a schedule change they will need to schedule an appointment with their school counselor. Appointments will be available beginning August 1, 2019. Students must have an appointment to make a schedule change. To schedule an appointment, click on the Schedule Change Appointments Google Sheet and make a comment with your first and last name to secure the available appointment time.

Schedule changes are made with parental approval, no exceptions. Click here to access the Schedule Change Request Form and have it signed by your parent prior to your meeting. The master schedule is complete and offered a 95% first choice completion rate! This means that preferential changes will be difficult to accomplish. Our priority is to help those with a significant schedule change need (an error, a gap in their schedule, etc).

Please note that not all schedule change requests can be accommodated. Requests based on the need for a required course to meet OLP’s graduation requirements will take priority. As a school policy, requests based on teacher preference cannot be accommodated. All schedule requests based on elective preference will be considered and will require a $20 schedule change fee.
