8th Grade Promotion


Promotion/Retention Policy

Students’ progress is determined from grade to grade by meeting the state’s standards for promotion. If a student is at risk of retention due to academic achievement, the parent or guardian will be notified early in the school year and school staff will meet with the parent to develop and implement an intervention plan to help the student meet the standards for promotion. It is the school’s intent to identify struggling students early in the school year so that interventions can be provided. Intervention opportunities will be provided for students who are at risk of retention. The school has a clear process and schedule for informing parents about their child’s progress toward meeting promotion criteria. The intervention process includes written notices and multiple meetings between the parents and teacher(s). It is the school’s intent to work collaboratively with parents/guardians to help a student gain the skills needed for promotion to the next grade level. Ultimately, state law (Education Code 48070.5) identifies that school professionals have the authority to retain a child except in some cases in Kindergarten.
