Probation/Exit Guidelines for GT Students

See Policy EHBB (Local)

Probation is for any GT student failing to demonstrate mastery of skills necessary for success at the next level in any core content course or grade level (English/Language Arts, Science, Mathematics, and/or Social Studies). Parents will be notified when a student is placed on probation. Collaboration between the parents and school will determine the type of interventions and how progress will be monitored during the probation period.


Probation Guideline:
Any GT student failing to demonstrate mastery of skills necessary for success at the next level, in any core content course or grade level, (English/Language Arts, Science, Mathematics, and/or Social Studies), will be placed on Probation status. Mastery of the skills necessary for success at the next level shall be validated by assessments that may either be incorporated into unit, nine week, or semester exams. Mastery of at least 70 percent of the objectives shall be required for those courses with a numerical grading system. Mastery of the majority of objectives is required for those grade levels utilizing standards-based grading.

The probation procedure may also be initiated by a classroom teacher, advanced academic specialist, campus GT liaison, counselor, principal, parent(s), or the Director of Advanced Academics and Gifted and Talented Program, based on academic struggles. A committee comprised of at least three gifted and talented trained district/local campus educators will determine the specific improvement actions the student must make within the probation period. A GT Committee may be called at any time the student is at risk of academic failure.

At the end of the probationary period, the student’s progress will be re-evaluated by a committee. If the student is passing all core courses, the student will be removed from probation; if not, the committee will consider furlough.

Furlough is defined as a leave of absence from the GT program that may last for up to one year. A furlough may be initiated by a student/ parent/ teacher or for continuous low performance.

Furlough Guideline:
A student may be placed on furlough (leave of absence) from the GT program for up to one year for any of the following reasons:
• Recommendation of the GT Committee, based on continual academic struggles
• The student elects not to participate in the levels of service offered to GT students at their grade level. (GT pullout program, Independent Study and/or Pre-AP/AP/GT courses at the intermediate and high school level).

Elementary students who are furloughed from the GT program will not attend the GT pullout classes.

A Webster Academy-Visions in Education (WAVE) Magnet student who is placed on furlough from the GT program will return to his/her home intermediate campus.

Intermediate and high school students not taking at least one Pre-AP/AP/GT or Independent Study course will be placed on furlough for one year.

At the end of the furlough period, a student will be re-evaluated by a GT committee. A decision will be made regarding the reinstatement of the student in the GT program or to initiate exit procedures.
