upward Bound Behavior Problems

Probation Status may be reinstated at any time if the student fails to meet standards set by the school and/or program relative to attendance, behavior, and/or academic progress.

Inappropriate material which is not put away may be confiscated until the end of the day.

If the student is disruptive in class (such as talking when other students are contributing to class discussion or when the instructor is talking or ridiculing or fighting with other students) he or she will be asked to leave the classroom and in the summer report to the Upward Bound office to talk with the director. If this happens more than once or if the first occasion is especially serious, the student may be placed on probation or expelled from the program.

If a student is disruptive outside of class, he or she may be given a warning, placed on probation or expelled from the program. The response will depend upon the seriousness of the offense.

If the student does not show academic progress after appropriate assistance is provided (e.g. tutoring, make-up test, make-up project) and if it is determined that lack of progress results from lack of initiative and industry, we may reinstate probationary status or put the student on a contract.

Once placed on an academic, attendance, and/or behavior contract, progress will be monitored for a specified time. If sufficient progress does not occur, we may expel the student from the program.

Anyone caught with a weapon will be referred to the UW or Seattle Police and immediately expelled from the program.
