Evaluation and Grades
All MAP classes observe a full-year term. Midterm grades are posted to WebAdvisor in late January. Final grades, cumulative of the whole year, are posted to WebAdvisor no later than two weeks after the last Saturday of MAP. All faculty members use traditional letter grades. MAP does not compute grade point averages for students.
Any student who receives a grade of "B-" or below in any of their classes will be placed on academic status (concern, warning, or probation).
Absences and Tardiness
MAP students are expected to attend all of their scheduled classes on time each Saturday. Students will be allowed two (2) absences during the fall semester and two (2) absences during the spring semester without penalty to their grade. Additional absences may result in a lowering of the student’s grade, and/or the student being placed on a status of concern, warning, or probation. Lateness may also result in the lowering of a student’s grade at the instructor’s discretion. Excessive absences may result in dismissal from the program.
Readmission to MAP
Re-admission to MAP each year is not automatic. Families must indicate on their Student Intent Form if they wish to re-apply for MAP for the upcoming year. This officially notifies the office of the student’s interest in returning and begins a process to determine if the student will be recommended for re-admission by the faculty. Only when the student has shown satisfactory progress and commitment in all areas of study, will he/she be considered for re-admission. A notification letter will be sent after jury examinations in May as to the student’s reinstatement status.
If the student has not shown a satisfactory degree of commitment to the program, or is under concern, warning, or probationary status, he/she may not be re-admitted. The MAP administrators do their best to make early diagnoses of academic, attendance, or attitude problems; however, it is up to the student and his/her parent(s)/guardian(s) to communicate with the teachers and make improvements in all aspects of performance.
