Mandatory interventions for students who do not meet promotion requirements and demonstrate danger of failure at reporting periods include:
A 9th period study skills class from 2:55 to 3:40 every weekday for five consecutive weeks;
summer, evening, Saturday, and/or online courses;
suspension from athletic and other extra‐curricular activities; and
psycho‐social and/or case management services upon teacher, counselor, administrator, student, or family request.
Failure to abide by mandatory interventions, will result in
the same consequences as missing regularly scheduled classes, including but not limited to detention, Saturday detention, in‐school suspension, out of school suspension, and/or expulsion.
In addition, a student review may take place, which may lead to the student’s transfer to a more appropriate educational environment than Jones.
Mandatory Intervention Plans
If a student does not meet grade promotion requirements at the 5th, 10th, 15th, or 20th ‐ week grade reporting periods, he/she may be held at his/her current grade level until all of the promotion requirements are completed. He/she will be reassigned to the proper grade‐level immediately upon completing the necessary tasks.
Grade‐related privileges – such as retreats, lock‐ins, senior prom, and graduation – will be extended only to students who have met the promotion requirements.
9th period study skills
A student who fails a class at any of the 5‐week grading periods will be required to attend 9th period study skills class for 5 weeks. It is also possible for a student to be dismissed by the 9th period study skills teacher(s) and the assistant principal.
The skill class will meet during 9th period from 2:55 – 3:40 pm Monday through Friday.
The teacher(s) works with students to help them get back on track.
Counseling interns meet with students to check in on them and to monitor their academic progress.
Counselors supervise the interns in their work with individual students and academic support groups.
Students who fail a class are also on the Academic AIL (Activities Ineligibility List). It is both the student’s responsibility and the adult sponsor/coach/leader’s responsibility to ensure that students on the AIL do not participate in school activities.
Students with one F are on the AIL (Activities Ineligibility List), and are not allowed to participate in school activities until after 3:40PM. This includes club meetings, sports practice and games, performances, dances, etc. for 5 weeks. Students with one F are also not allowed to miss the class that they are failing for a field trip.
Students who have more than one F are on the AIL (Activities Ineligibility List), and are not allowed to participate in any school events for 5 weeks. This includes club meetings, sports practice and games, performances, dances, field trips, etc. for 5 weeks.
