Appeals Procedure

  • A student (and/or parent) has the right to appeal when he/she becomes ineligible for the A+ financial incentive due to attendance or citizenship. In cases of appeal, the student must complete an A+ Appeals Form and submit it to the A+ coordinator. The A+ coordinator shall then convene an Appeals Committee meeting for consideration of the appeal. 

    Appeals forms are available at the bottom of this page and in the RHS college and career office.

    The following outlines the appeal process:
    Students/parents will have 30 days from the receipt of a progress report or disqualification letter to appeal a decision. Anyone making an appeal must use the “Appeals Form” available in the A+ office. Upon receiving a written appeal, the A+ coordinator will convene the A+ Appeals Committee.

    After the A+ Appeals Committee reaches a decision, the A+ coordinator will notify the student/parent by letter within five days.  Any and all appeals will be conducted following policies set by the Ritenour Board of Education. 

    If the student would like to appeal the decision of the A+ Appeals Committee, the appeal must be made in writing to the building principal within 30 days of the Appeals Committee’s decision.

    The A+ coordinator will act as a facilitator and a non-voting member of the Appeals Committee.
