In order for a student to change from a Pre AP or AP course, a student must request the change of class by the 3rd week of the semester. The request can be done by a parent/student or a teacher. Please read the Program of Studies for SBISD so see the guidelines for enrollment.
A student may request a one time "stay" in PAP or AP courses during the year. This is typically done when a student has a grade of 75% or below for a 6 week grading period. The form can be picked up from the Alpha Counselor's office and will have a specific due date for its return. The student will need to ensure the entire form is filled out by the parent/student/and PAP/AP teacher. The request is subject to grade level principal approval.
A student may have a conference with the Alpha Counselor if he/she receives a failing grade for a 6 weeks or semester. All options will be discussed with the student (stay in with a request or drop down to grade level) and the student will share the discussion with a parent/guardian.
Every student that participates in a PAP/AP course is required to fill out the Pre-AP and AP Student Contract that can be found on page 6 of the SBISD Program of Studies.
Forms are typically passed out during the first weeks of school during English class.
Students who participate in a UIL activity (ex. Band, Choir, or Athletics), need to speak with their sponsor/teacher/coach about grades and how they affect participation in a UIL sanctioned activity.
