Behavior Problems

Upward Bound Students 2002 during lecture

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/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/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 University or Seattle Police and immediately expelled from the program.

Students placed on any type of contract during their first year in the program will be reviewed after 15 months to determine if their improvement is sufficient for them to remain in the program. The Upward Bound Program is required to track college status and graduation for all students who have been in Upward Bound for 18 months.
