AP Appeal Process

Please note that STEPS 1 AND 2 MUST BE COMPLETED BEFORE 9:00 a.m. FRIDAY MAY 24, 2019 in order for your request to be considered.

A student initiates an appeal for admission into a Social Studies AP course by contacting a Social Studies Department Chair, Ms Ochs or Mr Profitt, and then he will be asked to complete steps 1 and 2 below (possibly step 3 depending on the results of steps 1 and 2):

  1. The student’s request for admission into AP will be considered based on the final grades of the Spring semester which he just completed. An appealing student is to request that Mr. Naughton (pnaughton@jesuitcp.org) email the final Spring Semester overall GPA and cumulative Social Studies grades to the Social Studies Department Chairs (dochs@jesuitcp.org and cprofitt@jesuitcp.org). Required Spring semester grades must be delivered to Social Studies Department Chairs BEFORE Friday May 24, 2019 for appeal consideration.
  2. The student will have BOTH his most recent Social Studies AND English teachers email the Social Studies Department Chairs (dochs@jesuitcp.org and cprofitt@jesuitcp.org) with a brief recommendation. Recommendation must be delivered to Social Studies Department Chairs BEFORE Friday May 24, 2019 for appeal consideration. 
  3. The student may be required to write a paper on a topic to be determined by the Social Studies Department Chairs in order to exhibit the student’s command of thesis crafting, ability to defend a thesis with factual evidence, argument organization, clarity of prose and citation skills. Topics and expectations will be graduated based on the student's current grade level.

All students are to understand that evidence of plagiarism is considered a serious breach of academic integrity.
