Rancho Cucamonga High School AIM GPA Amendment sign now

We, the students and staff of Rancho Cucamonga High School, would like to amend the proposition of basing the Academic Intervention and Mentoring Program (AIM) grade point average (GPA) from an unweighted to a weighted GPA. Ostensibly, the purpose of this entire program is to reach students that are struggling and to offer them the help that they need. However, if this target audience is cramped in a room with up to 20 other students who do not necessarily need to be there, the caliber of learning/remediation is substantially reduced, thus defeating the principle of the program altogether! The most abused and unfortunate group of all, according to a general consensus of students, is the 3.0-3.39 subgroup. Going about it in this manner depreciates the value and work of those taking AP/honors. The administration decided to take on that extra responsibility , and are subsequently forced into the 3.0-3.39 subgroup because the administration refuses to recognize the challenge that they chose to take upon themselves and factor that into the determination process. In order to effectively portray the plight of this subgroup, I ask that you take this example into consideration:
There is a student who chooses to take all College Prep and gets all As and one or 2 Bs. This student will then be rewarded and praised, more so than the student who challenged himself/herself and received generally Bs and perhaps a C.
(Note: This is not meant to insult/demean those that take college prep classes. It is merely an example meant to point out how unwarranted the administrations decision is.)
