PROMOTIONS AND RETENTION

School 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)

  • Chronological age

  • School attendance

  • Effort

  • 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

B=80–89

C=70-79

D=60-69

F=Below 59.5

Parent/Teacher Conferences

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.
