There are two areas in which students must meet requirements to be promoted to the next grade level or to graduate: attendance and academics.

Attendance

According to our attendance policy, students who have 18 more unexcused absences/excused absences without a doctor’s note within a school year will not be promoted to the next grade level. They will repeat the grade regardless of their grades.

 

Academics

A student’s promotion status is determined by the following measures in grades K-2:

Students must show sufficient mastery of reading, language arts, and math skills to be promoted. Promoting students to the next grade level will be based on a committee decision. The committee members are formed of school administrators, classroom teachers and special education teachers if needed.

A student’s promotion status is determined by the following measures in grades 3-8:

  1. Students must have the passing grades (D- or above at the end of the year)  in all four core subjects (Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science)
  2. If a student fails two elective/special courses (Computer, Art, Music, Health, Physical Education, Character Education, GTT, Foreign Language, etc.), that student will not be promoted to the next grade level.
  3. Students in 8th grade cannot take summer credits for promotion to 9th grade.

 

A student’s promotion status is determined by the following measures in grades 9-12:

 

Ninth Grade Promotion

To be promoted from ninth to tenth grade, students must pass at least three of their core subject courses (Math, Science, English and Social Studies) and must have successfully completed a minimum of 6 units of credit.

 

Tenth Grade Promotion
