Graduation and Promotion Requirements
A student will be assigned to a summer program if he/she:
- Has failed Reading (Grade 3), Language Arts (Grade 4), or English (Grades 5-8); or has failed Mathematics; or has scored below the 26th percentile in reading or math in the fall administration of the TerraNova.
- Has not completed either a multidisciplinary or service learning project (Grade 8 only).
The decision is made to promote or retain the student at the end of the summer program. Failure to meet promotion/retention qualifications may result in Grade 8 students being excluded from Closing Exercises.
*Note: The Promotion/Retention Policy is set by the School District and is subject to changes.
