All students will have their academic record reviewed every 5 weeks. Students failing two or more subjects at the midpoint or endpoint of any marking period will be placed on Academic Probation.
ACADEMIC PROBATION PROCEDURE:
At every 5-week marking period, a list of students who are failing two or more courses will be generated.
A letter will be sent from the Main Office informing parents that their child is on Academic Probation. Coaches and Club Advisors will also receive the list with students on Academic Probation.
The Athletic Director will meet with all Student-Athletes on the Academic Probation list. An individualized plan will be developed for each student athlete will follow in order to be removed from Academic Probation.
The Assistant Principal will meet with all students involved in clubs or other after-school activities (not sports) on the Academic Probation list. An individualized plan will be developed for each club member that the student will follow in order to be removed from Academic Probation.
While on Academic Probation, students will meet with the Athletic Director or Assistant Principal once a week and provide evidence that they are working towards improving their grades in the courses they are failing.
Those students who are failing 2 or more courses and who are not participating in extra curricular activities will be reviewed by administration and counselors where further interventions may be put in place i.e. Achievement Center, Study Skills, Pass Restriction, Meetings w/Counselor etc.
If after 2 weeks, the student has not shown any improvement and/or is not meeting the expectations set forth in the plan set up with the Athletic Director or Assistant Principal, the student will be placed on Competition Restriction (i.e. student can practice, but cannot play in games; student can attend rehearsals, but cannot perform in show, etc.).
If after 4 weeks, the student continues to show no improvement and is not meeting the expectations set forth in the plan, the student will become Academically Ineligible (cannot practice; cannot play in games; cannot participate in after-school activities).
Student retains the right to appeal the Academic Ineligibility decision to the Academic Eligibility Committee (which includes Building Administrators, Athletic Director, Teacher representatives, Guidance Counselors, Coaches).
If a student is no longer failing two or more subjects at the next 5-week marking period, the student will exit the program
