Helpful Tips

  • Guidelines for Exiting a Pre AP/AP Course:

    Exit processes are necessary to assist students in making sound course selections decisions. Students and parents must be aware that, depending on the timeline, grades earned in Pre AP or AP courses follow the students to the corresponding on-level course. These grades will be included in calculating the on-level course grade and may impact UIL eligibility.

    1. Students are expected to seek support when needed to be successful in the Pre AP/AP course. Actions taken should include tutorials and conferencing with the teacher.

    2.  Student must submit a formal request to be exited from a Pre AP or AP course. This request will be reviewed by the teacher and campus designee(s) to consider student performance, availability of space in other courses, grading timelines, and other factors that may be at issue. Students experiencing success (maintaining a C or better for the semester) should remain in the class for the semester.

    3. Students who earn an F in a Pre AP/AP course at the end of the grading period may be removed from the class unless otherwise recommended by the teacher or administrator.

    4. Students who elect to take an AP class for which there is no academic equivalent will be required to remain in the course until the end of the semester.
