Policy 5118.1 – Promotion

Promotion is the action that advances a student from one grade to the next on the basis of demonstrated academic accomplishment.

Generally, students are promoted at the close of the school year.

Students may be promoted from one grade to another at other times provided that the quality of the work warrants it. Such promotions will take place only after appropriate staffing, and parent/guardian conferences.

The principal will have the authority to promote students. Records will be kept of all promotions. The parent/guardian will be informed of these actions.
