This policy is intended to provide additional motivation to students whose academic achievements are not up to their capability. If implementation of this policy would be counterproductive to this end, the secondary director may decide not to place a student on probation. A written record explaining this decision will be signed by the director and the school board president and placed in the student’s file.
Secondary students are required to maintain at least a 2.0 grade-point average during any two, consecutive quarters. Exceptions will be made for students who have a grade point average of less than 2.0 but have not failed any courses during the quarter in question.
- If a student’s GPA is below 2.0 (i.e. a “C” average), that student will be placed on academic probation during the following quarter. A parent-teacher conference will be arranged at this time.
- If at the end of the next quarter the student’s quarter GPA has not risen to at least a 2.0, that student will be expelled.
- Students who are on academic probation are ineligible to participate in extra-curricular activities.
