AP DROP FORM

In order to encourage all students to complete coursework that prepares them for the successful pursuit of post-secondary education, this form must be completed in its entirety prior to a student being removed from an AP/Pre-AP course. Parent’s signature is required after the Counselor/Administrator/Teacher have fully explained the ramifications of dropping AP/Pre-AP courses. Overall GPA and Final Ranking could be affected (EIC Local). As educators at RGCGCISD, we highly encourage students that meet the criteria for Advanced Placement courses to work hard, complete all assigned work, and be prepared in class. If a student and parent are determined to drop their child from an AP/Pre-AP course, the Counseling Department and Administration have exhausted every avenue and fully explained the effects and outcomes of the decision.


AP Drop Form


Please download and print the AP Drop Form. Complete the form and meet with your Counselor.

Not only is the GHS Counseling Department utilizing the Navigating The Swamp monthly newsletter to help students, but new resources have been added. Be on the lookout for our GHS Counseling Billboard located in the lower level wall of the cafeteria and make sure to visit our GHS Counseling Conference Center located by the GHS Counseling Department offices (Room A112).
