WELCOME 8/12/22

Welcome new and returning students and parents! As James S. Rickards High School Assistant Principal of Curriculum, I feel honored to have the privilege of working closely with such an outstanding and dedicated school community! I am committed to continuing the success of every child, both academically and socially, through innocent classroom philosophy - where each child's good is discovered, cherished and protected.  Parents and guardians, I invite you to take an active role in your child’s education. It truly takes the village to raise our children. I look forward to working with you this year!

Our first few days of school have been awesome!  We have completed our scheduling process. Since we are towards the end of enrolling students for this school year, we are now working on balancing classes that are too large or too small. Therefore, students requesting schedule changes will be limited and situational only. Please see below for examples of acceptable and unacceptable schedule changes.

Acceptable schedule changes are:

  • Remediation requirements according to the State of Florida law
  • Transcript review for graduation requirements
  • Incomplete schedule/ missing one or more periods.
  • Schedule conflicts

Unacceptable schedule changes:

  • Parents requesting certain teachers
  • Student has changed mind about elective class(es)
  • Students don’t like the teacher and/or the order of classes

If you have any questions about scheduling, please contact me at 850-488-1783 or e-mail our Guidance Counselors at RHS.Guidance@leonschools.net
