At the conclusion of the Elementary (KINES 351/352) and Secondary (KINES 451/452) block, a maintenance check will occur. Continuation in the K-12 PE cohort requires that teacher candidates score an average at or above 80 in each Disposition section of the Professional Disposition Assessment form, in addition to maintaining an overall ≤3.0 GPA and ≤3.00 GPA in KINES courses. Keep in mind that any grade earned in a KINES course at a C- or below is not acceptable and will need to be repeated.
K-12 Denial of Continuation Appeal Policy
In the event that a teacher candidate in the cohort fails to meet the minimum requirements (GPA and Disposition), that student will be denied continuation in the K-12 program as a result of the Admissions Committee vote. The candidate may address (in writing) the reasons, outlined in the denial letter, and request reconsideration by the admissions committee. This appeal must be received in the K-12 Program Coordinator’s office no more than 10 working days after the date of the denial letter of origination. Upon receipt of the appeal request, the Admissions Committee will review this request and vote again on the status of the candidate. The candidate will be informed, in writing, of the status of his or her appeal within five working days of receipt of the appeal.
