MTHS Uninvite Procedure 2017-2018

OVERVIEW
The mission of MTHS is to provide a nurturing environment where school and community stakeholders empower all students to graduate as ethical, global citizens prepared for college and careers. To ensure we maintain these high standards, we require students to meet the expectations listed below in the areas of academics, timeliness/attendance, and behavior. Students who do not meet these expectations will be uninvited from MTHS for the following school year.

The above is in accordance with the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations rule 2106.11: "Students who are admitted to schools outside the attendance zones established for their place of residence shall be entitled to attend these schools for the duration of their participation in the academic program except in the following circumstances:

(b) If the students are admitted to specialized schools, programs, or academies and the students no longer meet the criteria established for the specialized schools, programs, or academies."

MTHS STUDENT EXPECTATIONS
Academies: Maintain an advisory and cumulative GPA of at least 2.0
Attendance and Lateness: Arrive to school on time (8:45 a.m.) and have 5 or fewer unexcused absences, each advisory
Behavior: Comply with all MTHS and DCPS (Chapter 25) policies. Specifically, any student with documented patterns of infractions that are tier two and above will be referred for the uninvite process. Students who have a tier four or tier five infraction are automatically required to meet with members of the Retention Committee (within 30 days of the incident), with their parent or guardian, before a final uninvite decision is made. Any student who fails to meet with the Retention Committee will be uninvited for the following school year.

Please see Chapter 25 for more information. https://dcps.dc.gov/chapter25

If at any time you have questions about your child's grades, you can contact your child's teachers, grade-level administrator, or counselors, directly.
