The PC can be requested by a parent/legal guardian, age of majority/emancipated student, or school counselor/administrator/case manager using the Request & Plan Form 2 (general education) or Form 3A (students with an IEP). PC requests are typically accepted starting in a student’s sophomore year. The completed request form should be submitted to the student’s designated school counselor. Within 30 school days from the date the PC Request Form is received the PC process will be completed.
