Students in grades 3, 5, and 7 must achieve a minimum score on State reading and math tests to be promoted. Students in grade 8 must achieve a minimum score on State reading and math tests and earn passing grades in their core academic classes. Promotion in other grades is based on the results of State tests (where applicable), classwork, and attendance.
As a parent, you are encouraged to have ongoing discussions with teachers and guidance counselors about your child's progress, especially if you are concerned that your child will not be promoted on time. For information on the appeals process during the school year, contact your school. During the summer, contact your District Family Advocate.
