A student who is withdrawn from a magnet program housed in a comprehensive school will be required to attend the student's home school unless an application for Special Permission Transfer to another comprehensive school is filed by the parent and approved in accordance with Superintendent's Rule 5140.
Students in danger of being withdrawn from a magnet program will receive written notification of their status in accordance with Section 6 of Rule 5220, entitled STUDENTS: Reporting to Parent. Counseling regarding the propriety of a student's continuation in magnet schools and programs will take place at the end of the school year. Any decision by the principal to withdraw a student from a magnet program because of academic failure in a magnet course must be approved in advance by the supervisor of Magnet Programs, or a designee. The principal will provide the student's parent(s) with a written explanation of the basis for the withdrawal that includes the process for appealing the decision.
