All students have their academic progress formally evaluated eight times per year, in the middle and at the end of each quarter. Regardless of the eight formal evaluations during the year, students may be placed on the ineligibility list at any time during the school year by the Dean of Academic Administration. A student is deemed ineligible when his grade point average drops below a 1.7, or when he accumulates 2 or more points using the following scale: each grade of D+, D, and D- counts as 1/2 point, and each grade of F counts as one point. In other words, a student who has four or more D’s, two or more D’s and an F, or two or more F’s will be ineligible.
All students who are deemed ineligible will be restricted from participating in any extra-curricular activities for a minimum of two weeks, and additional intervals of one week until their grades improve. In addition, all freshmen and sophomores who are ineligible will be required to attend the Learning Center in Room 11 during all their free periods (excluding lunch) for a minimum of two weeks, and additional intervals of one week until their grades improve enough to remove them from ineligibility. The Learning Lab will be open to students who are not ineligible, too, but attendance is not mandatory for those students. Tutoring and other services in Room 11 are designed to assist students in improving their academic performance and removing themselves from the ineligibility list.
NOTE: A student who fails in any of his obligations for either arranging meetings, attending the Afterschool Program, or attending tutoring sessions arranged by his teacher, counselor, or the Dean of Academic Administration will receive the penalty for cutting a class. The student also risks gaining permanent ineligibility due to his lack of concern with fulfilling these obligations. Time spent at jug for these infractions takes away from the Afterschool Program and some tutoring sessions. This lost time must be made up before eligibility will be granted.
