NJHS Dismissal Process

National Junior Honor Society Dismissal Process

Members who are deficient in maintaining the standards that were the basis for their selection shall be issued a written warning by the chapter adviser and given a reasonable amount of time to correct the deficiency.

In addition to maintaining the standards, members must actively participate in the activities of the Chapter. To be an active participant, students must make every effort to attend Chapter meetings and Chapter sponsored activities. Minimal expectations are as follows:

1. Members are allowed no more than 2 unexcused absences, inclusive of Chapter meetings, Chapter service projects, and all other Chapter activities. As this pertains to the Executive Council, Executive Council meetings and activities are also included.

2. Members are allowed no more than 3 excused absences. An excused absence requires that the member provide the Chapter adviser with written explanation for the absence at least 24 hours prior to the meeting or activity.

3. Members must complete the requisite individual service hours and the requisite Chapter service hours.

Three warnings of any sort render a member eligible for dismissal.

A majority vote of the Faculty Council is required for a member to be dismissed.

In the case of a flagrant violation of school rules or the law, the member may be dismissed without warning.

In the case of a pending dismissal, the member shall be afforded a hearing before the Faculty Council.

A member who has been dismissed may appeal the decision of the Faculty Council to the principal.

The faculty council reserves the right to amend the Dismissal Process when deemed necessary.
