The district recognizes that not all students grow and develop at the same rate and that some students may need more time at a particular level. Students will be promoted to the next grade level at the end of each school year based upon the student’s achievement, age, maturity, emotional stability, and social adjustment.
The retention of a student will be determined based upon the judgment of the licensed employee and the principal. When it becomes evident a student in kindergarten through eighth grade may be retained in a grade level for an additional year, the parents will be informed as soon as possible. It is within the sole discretion of the superintendent, in consultation with the building principal, to retain students in their current grade level.
Students in ninth through twelfth grade will be informed of the required course work necessary to maintain adequate progress toward graduation. When it becomes evident a student in these grades will be unable to meet the minimum credit requirements for the year, the student and parents will be informed as soon as possible. It is within the sole discretion of the board to deny privileges to students based on their accumulated credits.
Students in seventh through twelfth grade with exceptional talents may, with the permission of the building principal and parents, take classes beyond their current grade level. Enrichment opportunities outside the district may be allowed when they do not conflict with the district's graduation requirements.
