PROMOTIONS AND RETENTIONSchool Board Policy EIA
Each child develops physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially at an individual rate. Therefore, for some children, more than twelve years of public education are necessary to achieve the minimal standards of an appropriate education. Placement in elementary, middle and junior high school grade levels will be based upon:
Maturity (emotional, social, mental, and physical)
Progress and grade marks achieved.
Standardized test results
A team including the principal, teachers and parents will convene to review all data to determine the need for retention or promotion.
Progress Reports and Grades
At the end of each nine-week period, progress reports/grades are prepared for students and parents. Parents are invited to contact their child’s teacher with questions.
Grading Scale: A=90-100
Parents are encouraged to attend parent/teacher conferences due to the importance of working together for the student’s education and keeping communication open and ongoing. Parent/teacher conference days are noted on the district calendar.
Stillwater Pioneer Virtual Academy
Specifics tracking of student progress for our virtual students is a little different that for our traditional in-person students. Information about tracking SPVA student progress can be found in the SPVA Student Progress section. The progress of SPVA students taking in-person electives along with their virtual classes may be monitored using a mixture of the methods above and those listed under the SPVA Student Progress section.
