Promotion/Retention Policy

The Board of Education expects students to progress through each grade level within one school year. AB1626 requires that students must meet grade level standards in order to be promoted. Students not meeting standards are retained as provided in Board Policy 5123 and Education Code 37252.2. The board of Education does not engage in “Social Promotion.”

The criteria used to determine whether a student is eligible for promotion includes achieving a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 1.67 or higher by the end of the school year.

Counselors will notify students and parents of a student’s risk of retention as soon as the data is available. At the end of each trimester, counselors will view grades and determine if any new students are at risk and parents will be notified of the student’s status for promotion.

Parents and students are encouraged to stay current with assignments and grades. Contact the teacher directly if there are concerns.
