Student Progress Policy for Family Christian Academy
Parents are made aware of student progress by eight grading reports. There consist of four interim reports and four quarterly reports. The interim report is not kept for the child's permanent record. In grades 6-12, permanent grades and credit are recorded per semester and each semester of failed work must be repeated for credit.
Students who do not maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average for any nine-week grading period will be placed on academic probation. If the student's grades are not raised above a 2.0 GPA by the next nine-week grading period, administration may recommend the student be withdrawn from Family Christian Academy.
A student may be retained in the same grade for the next school year if he fails four or more semester's worth of courses during a school year. Retention of elementary students will be reviewed on the basis of social maturity, academic ability, and parental involvement.
Parents will be notified in the third nine weeks if retention of their child is being considered. If retention is recommended by the administration, summer school work will be considered remediation and will not substitute for repeating the grade. Summer school credit is accepted when a high school student has failed a semester of a course required for graduation. Family Christian Academy does not acknowledge any "new" work done in summer school.
The guidance office exists to serve as a liaison between the parent, teacher, and student. This office should be contacted to schedule teacher conferences, interventions, or graduate planning. The guidance office will document all conferences and will provide counseling for the student and the home.
A student of Family Christian Academy must fulfill all the basic requirements of graduation in order to participate in the graduation. All students are required to complete the Academy's Bible program each year. Failure of FCA's Bible program may result in probation and/or expulsion. It is the responsibility of the parents to ascertain that their child has earned the necessary Carnegie units for graduation. This is the sole responsibility of the child and the parents.
It is the responsibility of the parents to provide an academic planner for each child. Parents are encouraged to use this planner as a way to track homework, test dates, etc. As well, parents are encouraged to always be aware of student progress by looking for graded test papers and scheduling regular conferences with the teachers. Observant parents will know when their child isn't performing academically.
