The word “probation” carries a heavy meaning. Now imagine putting the word “academic” in front of it. Now athletes need to especially worry about these two words, because it means they can not play in the next game until they get their grades up. Now if you are a student who doesn’t play any sports and get one bad grade in a class that drops you down to an F. This puts you on Academic Probation.  Principal Jim Franz said the entire reason for academic probation is to refocus priorities.

“It’s a wake up call to get in check,” Franz said. “If a 4 point GPA student gets a D in a class we would need to figure out what’s going on and how we would fix what’s going on.”

Academic Probation is like a stubborn child being forced to go to therapy. The kid at first will not want to go and think that he is being punished. In reality, the therapist is there to make sure the kid stays on the right track and doesn’t fall off the edge more. Academic Probation is actually more like a gift than a punishment in the end if you look past the negative aspect.
