Academic Probation Policy
It is the intent of the LASA Academic Probation Policy to help
students reach their full academic potential. Academic Probation is
a system of support in which counselors work with students and
their parents to create an Individual Academic Plan that will help
students be successful at LASA. Individual Academic Plans
mayinclude: required tutoring, check-ins with a LASA staff or
faculty member, organization and time-management plans, and other
supports that meet a student's individualneeds. Plans may be
modified during the school year.
Reasons to be placed on academic probation
• Incoming students are placed on academic probation because
their application rubric score indicates that they may need support
in their transition to LASA.
• Current LASA students who receive a year-long average below
70 in a core or LOTE class.
When a student may be returned to good academic standing:
• Students may only be removed from academic probation at the
end of a school year.
• Once placed, all students remain on academic probation for
a minimum of one school year. In order to return to good academic
standing a student must pass allclasses for the year. One exception
is if a student fails a class for one semester, but the year-long
average in the course is an 80 or higher, than the student willno
longer be on academic probation.
How to be returned to good academic standing:
• Students must have a semester average of 70 in all core,
LOTE, and signature courses.
• If a student is on academic probation and the only course
they fail is a signature course than the student will remain on
academic probation for the followingschool year.
What happens if a student remains on academic probation at the end
of a school-year :
• Students who have below 70 in a core or LOTE class will
receive a letter that revokes their magnet transfer. Students will
be offered the opportunity to request an appeal meeting with the
• If an appeal decision allows a student to remain at LASA,
and the conditions of the academic probation are not met, the
student will have their magnet transfer revoked at the end of the
next school year without
the opportunity to appeal.
