OHS Advanced Placement Exam Policy

Students who fail the first semester will be withdrawn from the AP course. A teacher can approve exceptions due to extenuating circumstances (illness, etc) rather than lack of effort. Teachers must report first semester failures to the administrator in charge of the ap program. The administrator in charge will work with the student, teacher, parent, and counselor to make a decision regarding the schedule change.
