The purpose of these guidelines is not to be punitive, but to ensure that students are appropriately placed for their academic and emotional needs. Students enrolled in Honors classes are expected to maintain grades of 77% (C+) or better throughout their enrollment in the classes. However, in those instances where a student’s academic performance declines, the following steps will be taken: If a student receives a 73-76% (C) or lower at the end of the first, second, or fourth nine weeks grading period, he/she will be moved down a course level at the start of the following grading period. If the student receives a 73-76% (C) or lower at the end of the third nine weeks grading period, he/she will remain in the class through the school year, but moved down a course level at the start of the next school year. This will occur after parents and students are contacted throughout the nine weeks.

It is desired that students will continue in the honors classes throughout the middle school years. If, however, the program is found to be an inappropriate educational placement for the child and the child moves to another class, the middle school principal will collaborate with the school counselor, team teacher, and/or parent to decide a better placement for the student.
