- All MAPPS students will complete their core classes at Mosley High School in order to ensure they are prepared for the next level of instruction.
- MAPPS students who take an Advanced Placement (AP) course(s) are required to take the corresponding AP Examination(s) in May.
- With MAPPS being a college prep program, all MAPPS students must take Math and English all four years regardless of their credits. A student cannot take a course equivalent class at another institution to have it count toward credit that can be obtained at Mosley.
- Students may take any class, on FLVS or through Bay Virtual Academy for enrichment, additional elective credit, or to repeat a failed class.
- If a MAPPS student fails a course that is required for graduation, the student must make up that course (through FLVS or Bay Virtual Academy) BEFORE the next school year begins. Failure to complete this requirement will result in the student being removed from MAPPS until such time as the credit is completed. The student may apply for reinstatement to MAPPS once the required remedial work is completed.
- MAPPS students who take a Dual-Enrolled (DE) class must meet all requirements set forth by Gulf Coast State College, including the class attendance policy.
- MAPPS students are required and expected to pass the FSA and all EOC exams. Failure to do so may warrant a probationary status and possible removal from the program. This decision rests with the MAPPS coordinator and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Academic Status Policies
In Good Standing Status:
MAPPS students who maintain the minimum cumulative un-weighted 3.0 GPA and have passed the FSA/EOC exams will be considered in good standing with the program.
A grade of D or F in any semester course, even though it may not drop a student’s GPA to below the minimum, can be erased from the student’s permanent record through the grade-forgiveness policy. Any MAPPS student who earns one of these grades should see their counselor for details on how to forgive the grade.
Academic Probation Status:
At the end of the fall semester, any MAPPS student who fails to maintain his/her minimum academic standard of a 3.0 cumulative un-weighted GPA will be placed on Academic Probation.
- A student with an unsatisfactory GPA will be notified by mail as to their status in the program by the MAPPS Coordinator as soon as the unsatisfactory GPA is confirmed at the end of a semester.
- Parents/legal guardians are encouraged to contact Mr. Durden to review the specifics of their student’s academic situation.
- Students, although not currently eligible for participation in the GCSC Dual-Enrollment program, are encouraged to continue taking the PERT and registering for DE classes on the premise that they will reestablish their eligibility for these courses.
- Students who reestablish their GPA at the required minimum will be removed from Academic Probation following a review of their progress by their counselor.
Failure to improve academic performance at the end of the school year will result in the student being dismissed from the MAPPS program.
The student may reapply to MAPPS in the future if they reestablish and maintain a positive academic record for the next two semesters.
