ALP PROBATION AND SUSPENSION
A student who has been placed in the ALP program may continue to receive program services provided that he/she maintains overall satisfactory performance in ALP/AGL classes. Satisfactory performance is indicated by the student showing progress, maintaining an 80 or above average, independently completing assignments at high levels of mastery, and staying on pace with the MIC in each class in which ALP services are provided. The student is expected to complete all required assignments; to actively participate in class activities; and to show exemplary work habits, process skills, academic growth and progress towards mastery of the standards in the class(es) in which the student is receiving ALP services. In the event that the student does not meet the continuation criteria, he/she will be placed on probation for a monitoring period of a minimum of 6 weeks. In addition, the following steps will be taken:
- The homeroom teacher will send notice of the probation via email to the Learning Coach.
- The ALP program coordinator, grade level lead, classroom teacher(s), parent(s)/guardian(s) and the student will develop an academic plan for improvement. The improvement plan will state conditions that must be met in order for the student to continue in the ALP program. A copy of the improvement plan will be shared with parent(s)/guardian(s), and a second copy of the plan will be maintained by the ALP program coordinator.
- At the end of the probationary period, the school Eligibility Team will review the student’s progress and determine whether the conditions of the improvement plan have been met. If the conditions of the plan have been met, the student will continue in the ALP program. If the conditions of the plan have not been met, the Eligibility Team can decide if the student needs an extension and additional monitoring or if the student needs to be suspended from the program.
- If the student needs additional monitoring, certain data checkpoints and dates will be given to the student and Learning Coach. The team will determine 6-8 data points to use at the end of the monitoring period to determine if the ALP team or AGL course (s) are the appropriate placement for the student.
- If a student is suspended from the program, he/she may be reinstated after a minimum of one semester if marked improvement is made. A student’s teacher(s) and/or the student may present evidence of the student’s need for ALP services to the Eligibility Team for consideration. A minimum of 6-8 data points need to be considered. The Eligibility Team will consider the strength of the evidence presented and determine appropriate placement options.
- In the event that ALP program participation appears not to be in the student’s best interest for a particular period of time, the parent(s)/guardian(s), ALP program Coordinator or classroom teacher may request temporary withdrawal from the program even though the student may be meeting continuation criteria.
