I teach at a private elementary/middle school in southern CA, and we've always threatened an academic probation policy in the past, but we never followed through. The students continue doing miserably year after year, holding back the other students, and they really aren't getting the quality education that they deserve and could get in a public school with a special needs program. We've designed a committee to write up an academic probation policy for the fall that we will stick to; students not performing up to our standards will be dismissed from the school; this is one of the perks of a private school! My question is, would anyone be willing to share their school's academic probation policy? Do your parents sign a contract at the beginning of the year with certain steps to be followed or attained? Thanks so much for your time. This is my summer project, and I want to get it out of the way!
