Academic Leave

Eagle Academy Academic Leave Expectations 2022-23

All students enrolled at Eagle Academy agreed to pass their Student Success Score (SSS) and academic grade in each class, each quarter to remain a full-time student. Students that do not pass their SSS and/or academic grade in one or more classes in a quarter are placed on Academic Leave for one quarter. A student can only be placed on Academic Leave ONCE. While on Academic Leave a student can earn the right to return to Eagle Academy as full time the next quarter if he or she meets the following requirements; if all requirements are not met, the student will be disenrolled from Eagle Academy by, if not before, the end of the quarter. All students enrolled with Eagle Academy for the 21-22 school year must attend in person. Beginning the 21-22 school year, Academic Leave will meet Mondays AND Wednesdays, 4:30 - 6:00 PM, with students arriving no earlier than 4:25 PM.

Credit Requirements

❏ Complete .5 credits or more in an assigned course with a passing grade of at least 70%.
❏ At least 25% of required coursework by Week 3.
❏ At least 50% of required coursework by Week 6.
❏ Students who don’t meet the minimums established above will meet with an administrator to create a plan to complete the online course by the deadline.
❏ Each student will be assigned a class by the Academic Leave Teacher and Eagle Counselor.
❏ Once required coursework is completed, students are still required to attend Academy Leave sessions.
❏ Coursework must be completed by 6:00 PM on the last Academic Leave session of the quarter, except for students graduating at the end of the quarter whose work is due Week8.
❏ Students can complete work at home, however time spent working outside of designated Academic Leave hours DOES NOT count toward the attendance minimum

Attendance Requirements
❏ Students must earn their unexcused absences, with the maximum number of two (2) during the course of the quarter. Students must not have any unexcused absences during the first three weeks and must earn their absences by reaching the completion minimums above (25% by Week 3 and 50% by Week 6). 
❏ If students require a break they must sign out and back in; students may take no more than one 5 minute break per evening. All minutes must be made up at the end of class to complete the total of 90 minutes of work time for the class.
❏ Students that leave the room for longer than 5 minutes total will be sent home and counted absent for the night.
❏ NO EXITING the building. Once a student enters the building for class they cannot exit. Students that exit the building during Academic Leave without the explicit permission from the Academic Leave Teacher AND Eagle Administration will be counted absent for the night and sent home.
❏ Students are prohibited from attending Eagle on any night except their assigned Starlab nights.
❏ Arrival after 4:30 PM is prohibited; students who arrive late will be sent home with an unexcused absence.

Work Requirements
❏ Students MUST log a minimum of 90 work hours (for .25 credit), both online and through electronic copies of pay stubs (only official pay stubs with taxes and Social Security deducted are accepted) submitted to Ms.Quintana.
In order to receive work study credit, students must submit all paperwork and ongoing documentation to meet this expectation by 6:00 PM on the evening of the 8th Academic Leave session of the quarter.

Dis-Enrollment from Eagle Academy
Any student that does not meet the expectations above during their time on Academic Leave will be disenrolled from Eagle Academy by, if not before, the end of the quarter.

Communicating Course Progress
During the quarter there will be 2 progress reports sent home to allow both parents and students to monitor progress. Each report will indicate how many credits are assigned, what percent has been completed so far, and what grade the student is currently earning. All Work Study hours, online and hard copies of pay stubs, are due by 6:00 PM on the 8th Academic Leave session of the quarter, and all online classwork must be completed by 6:00 PM on the final Academic Leave session of the quarter, with the exception of students graduating at the end of that quarter, whose online work is due Week 8. The final grade and number of credits earned will be calculated by 7:30 pm on the last night of the quarter.

Additional Support
We realize that there are often multiple issues underlying the problems that led to a student being placed on academic leave. Students are encouraged, but not required, to seek additional support from a member of our mental health team at any time during the quarter.
