ACADEMIC STANDARDS AND PROCEDURES
- Students on co-curricular activities who fail more than one course in a marking period are declared ineligible and placed on academic probation. This probation begins on the day the quarter failure lists are produced.
- Coaches or advisors will notify students who are placed on academic probation immediately. Parents will also be notified. A student may request a hearing with the Appeals Committee.
- A student on academic probation may not participate in any contest, meeting, or special event for a period of two weeks. During this two-week probation, students are encouraged to work hard to pull up any and all failing averages. A student will pick up a reinstatement form from the office.
- Students may practice/participate in no more than 50% of scheduled meetings during this probation period. The other 50% of the time they should be seeking help, making up work, studying, doing research, etc. as appropriate. This 50% practice is to be determined by the coach.
- At the conclusion of the two-week probation, a student may be taken off probation if the student takes a reinstatement form to the teacher or teachers of the courses he/she failed and, the teacher states that they are now passing and in good standing.
- If after two weeks the academic standard is not achieved, probation continues until such time the standard is reached.
- All faculty and committee members will receive a copy of the ineligibility list.
- A student on the ineligible list as a result of two or more failures during the 4th quarter goes on a five-week probationary period in the fall of the following year. If at the five-week mark, a student on probation has more than one failure regardless of the course, he/she will immediately go on the regular two-week ineligible step (see #2). If he/she is in good academic standing, he/she is taken off the probation list.
If one of the two courses failed is a quarter or semester course that will not be rescheduled, the student will be placed on five-week probation immediately. The student will follow the rule pertaining to 4th quarter failures.
