• Student Administrative Academic Withdrawals (No refund)

    A student with a consistently low course average may be academically withdrawn from the VVA course according to the following course average thresholds and timeframes:

    • 20% withdrawal near the start of each semester

    • 40% withdrawal by the midpoint of each semester

    Students with an average under 20% who are withdrawn after the first month of a semester are not eligible for reinstatement. Students with an average under 40% who are withdrawn at the midpoint of a semester are eligible for reinstatement. To be reinstated in a course, a student will be required to participate in an academic conference involving the student, family, counselor or mentor, and a VVA administrator. The student will need to demonstrate adequate progress on goals established during the academic conference. Reinstatement conferences must be held within two weeks of the academic withdrawal date.

    The student may be placed on a Pace Recovery Plan (PRP) after demonstrating progress on current assignments. The PRP is designed to support a student in completing missing coursework and catching up with their cohort. Students who do not adhere to the PRP in its entirety will be academically withdrawn from VVA courses.

    In situations where students are withdrawn from classes for any reason, those families whose students have been accepted as special exceptions, or who are approved for partial payment, will be responsible to reimburse Suffolk Public Schools for any non-refundable tuition that has been paid.  Exceptions will be considered for extreme, documented, medical situations.
