Our district gives all AP/Pre-AP/Dual Credit classes a 10 point buffer (60+ to maintain eligibility), so they are compensating for the extra level of difficulty without letting a kid be a slug in the class.
Now if I can convince them to change a kid who can't even pull a 60 out of the class after the first grading period, then I think kids would be a lot more successful overall.
I have a student that failed an AP class (in the 60s). I am thinking of doing a waiver on the student. If you have done this before, how do you go about it, I know school districts and their approach will be different, but I want to ask in general how to do it before I get in trouble.
