A study in Texas shows that of all students who were suspended once, 14% were suspended 10 more times. When a student is suspended it does not help the school, it gets rid of a problem temporarily. What do they do when that problem comes back a week later? They suspend it, again pushing it off for a short period of time. Eventually, these students will dropout because the school didn’t deal with them properly. Yes, if the student did something wrong, they need to be punished, and not just by being forced to say sorry and write a paper. Many schools use what is called ISP for students who misbehave. ISP (Individualized Service Program) is like a prison for students, they can’t talk or sleep, but they still get the work the teacher gives the rest of the class. ISP was designed for students to have that feeling of being suspended, but still having to go to school, it also helps the student not to miss any schoolwork while being punished so the student can continue to grow and learn. After serving time in ISP most students don’t want to go back, and a lot of them don’t. It fixes the problem, and the student is more likely to stay in
While in high school my GPA was below a 2.0 and that was because I was involved in many sports that I had a strong passion for. I was very driven and dedicated, that most of my free time went into trying to be the best on the softball field and on the wrestling mat in hopes of receiving a scholarship. As an athlete you only needed a 2.0 GPA to compete and at that time I did not focus too much on exceeding that standard.

I hope that you are doing well and I am looking forward to meeting with you this week regarding any questions or concerns that you may have about your transcript, general education requirements, credit counts, GPA or other course work that you may have concerns about. After carefully reviewing your record, both your Degree Works and Cunyfirst transcript, I noticed that your GPA dropped to a 1.978. This means that you are now on academic probation. In order for you to file for graduation, you must raise your overall GPA to a 2.0 or above. I strongly encourage you to make an appointment to meet with me as soon as possible, to work on an academic plan to decide on what courses to take in your upcoming semesters. You are able to retake courses
Probation serves as the most frequently used sentence for those convicted. This is evident when you consider that the United States justice system oversees nearly 7 million people. Over half of those, a staggering 3.7 million people, are on probation with another 840,000 on parole (Rabuy, 2017). With those individuals representing the largest percentage of the American corrections system, it is important that we learn as much as possible about probation in order to improve the success of these programs. Probation involves a set of conditions that the probationer agrees to adhere to in exchange for remaining in the community. Typical conditions include a waiver of the offenders fourth amendment rights, maintaining employment or school
Probation can be handed down as a sentence in lieu of jail time or in combination with some jail time. Probation is usually always handed down at the time of sentencing by a judge in court.
A probation sentence generally involves suspension of of the offender's sentence in return for the promise of good behavior in the community under supervision of a probation officer. Promising to hold or suspend a prison term while the latter promises to follow a set of rules or conditions that are mandated by the court. The effectiveness varies by the offense behavior of offenders. Women are more likely to be placed on probation for drug or property offenses, and men are sentenced for violence or driving under the influence. Women perform better while being placed on probation and have respect toward technical violations and new
To figure out the likelihood of a high school football player’s success in college over 100 high school head football coaches were surveyed about their views on qualities high school football players need to move to the next level. The surveys were mailed, emailed, and followed by several phone calls if no response was received within four to six weeks. All coaches surveyed were members of the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and have had high school football players recruited by division one colleges within the last five years. The survey questions sought the following details about the football players: (1) Academic ability; (2) Athletic ability; (3) Self-determination; (4) Character; (5) History of overcoming adversities. Lastly, the end goal after the surveys have been collected and evaluated is to offer high school football players valuable information about what is needed to be considered for a four-year college scholarship.
My intention is to gain unrestricted admissions to the graduate program and earn my Masters of Education degree. I would appreciate the opportunity to enroll in the fall 2015 term to demonstrate my academic ability at the graduate level. Additionally, participation in the fall term would help me prepare for the opportunity to transition to a full time course load if accepted for the spring term.
Not trying to say that people get falsely accused often with this because everything seems organized for the most part, because I’m sure some kids who did violate the policy would try to go to a hearing just to attempt to get themselves out of a mess even though they are guilty. I respect the fact that there is a whole office dedicated to this too that is constantly filing and monitoring these reports and that they even get a student advisor to deal with them and get advice from them for everything. The punishments are also really severe, which can be both a good and bad thing. Following the sanctions in the policy, if you create a high-level violation, you can get probation, suspended from college, or even thrown out. I can understand the severity of these crimes, but it always makes me wonder if someone is innocent and gets an expulsion from the college or something like that, is that talked about during the hearing, or what happens if they realize it and it’s too late and they’re already suspended or expelled? Also from the reading, you can tell they put a great deal into everything because if they believe another student was involved with this one as a sort of conspiracy type thing, they will look into the other student as
Colleges can consider high school GPA as the alternative for test scores. Almost all of the schools during admission completely overlook high school GPA. William C. Hiss, a principal investigator of Defining promise, declares “High school grades matter, and they matter a lot” (Maitre, par.2). It is not fair for many students like Ms. Casimir, a sophomore attending Wake Forest University, who scored 1580 in SAT. This was “an embarrassment” as she graduated high school “with a 4.0” (Simon, par.10). Her dreams to go to “Cornell” and “Davidson” was shattered but yet she was admitted by the “Wake Forest University which gave her full ride without seeing her SAT score and she has 3.2 GPA now” (Simon, par.10). It’s not a miracle as diligence and
Probation is one of the least restrictive penalties among the alternatives confronting a sentencing judge. Probation is the conditional release of an individual by the court after he has been found guilty of the crime charged. In the case of probation then, the individual has not been sentenced to prison, although he may, in fact, have
Everybody in high school looked forward to graduation day. I looked at graduation myself, and decided what college to attend is a difficult situation. At first I didn’t know how I am going to get there, and I knew nothing going stand in the way to get my high school diploma. When I graduated from high school, I started as a freshman at the University of New Orleans. When I was at the University of New Orleans, I was a good standard student; however, my math grade wasn’t that great. Whenever when I was a senior in high school, without the need to study I maintain my grade with a perfect 3.6 grade point average. When I looked at my midterm overall average for the fall semester, my grade point average was a 2.5. I knew I could have done better,
My concern about being in academic probation is not being able to continue a path that will lead me to success. It was very difficult for me, as well as many incoming freshmen to adjust to a new way of living. I have always been around a family circle and they have always been there as a support throughout all of my education. It kills me to be in the situation that I am right now. I would never want to see my parents disappointment again. This I believe is a wake up call. A warning from which I have learned my mistakes from and I am ready to start off right. I have realized that my family has always been there with me. Even if I don’t see them every day of the week, I have the accessibility of being in communication with them and they are
