The Cooperation Grade reflects a student’s behavior and work habits in the classroom. Therefore, the Cooperation Grade is assigned based on the number of violations committed relative to the above-mentioned Classroom Rules. The teacher will document all violations and accordingly assign the cooperation grade for each course.
If a student frequently violates the above-mentioned Classroom Rules, the teacher must submit a “Referral Form” to the Vice Principal for proper action. Teachers are responsible in dealing with the above-mentioned classroom infractions as follows:
|Classroom Infractions & Cooperation Grade|
|E||Excellent||Exemplary conduct and no infractions|
|G||Good||Good behavior and no infractions|
|N||Needs Improvement||1-5 infractions||Warning or Detention|
|U||Unsatisfactory||6-10 infractions||Detention or Suspension|
At the end of each quarter, two and more “Us” in Cooperation Grades will lead the Administration to issue the student a probation contract. If the performance of the student has not improved the next quarter, then the student will be denied registration the ensuing year. If the performance of the student has remained unsatisfactory, then the expulsion process will take place.
