Your grades will be checked at the end of each semester. If you receive a C in any class, you will be put on probation. If you cannot bring up the grade (for a year-long class), your membership will be revoked. If you receive a C in a semester long class, you will also be put on probation and your membership will be revoked if you receive any other C’s after that point. If you have behavior/discipline issues throughout the year, the situation will be reviewed by a case-by-case basis. Consequences for behavior could result in immediate revocation or probation of your membership.
