Record of School Achievement and Higher School Certificate appeals against ‘N’ determinations – guidelines for school review
Last Updated: 1 February 2012
Principals may determine that a panel should consider appeals by students against the principal’s ‘N’ determination. This decision is entirely at the discretion of the principal.
When completing the School Review – Principal’s Report form, the following details should be included, if applicable:
- the student’s level of involvement in classwork
- the proportion of the course that was deemed unsatisfactory in warning letters (eg incomplete task was worth 30%)
- the proportion of assignments, homework, etc, completed in each course
- measures taken to improve the student’s involvement and whether the student’s application improved after warnings or counselling
- the existence of any personal or family problems that have affected the student’s studies
- evidence of warning(s).
