BP 5123

Students
PROMOTION/ACCELERATION/RETENTION

The School Board desires to see students progress with their peers through the school system's grade levels. To accomplish this, instruction should accommodate the varying interests and growth patterns of individual children and include strategies for providing extra attention or assistance when needed.

Promotion

Students shall progress through the school system's grade levels by demonstrating growth in learning the required basic skills.

Progress toward high school graduation shall be based on the student's ability to pass the subjects and electives necessary to earn the required number of credits.

(cf. 6146.1 - High School Graduation Requirements)

Acceleration

Acceleration is possible when high academic achievement is evident. However, the student's social and emotional growth shall be taken into consideration before placing him/her in a higher grade.

Retention

Retention may be considered when the student has not acquired appropriate and necessary skills and knowledge. Alternatives to retention shall be considered.

(cf. 5121 – Assessment/Evaluation of Student Achievement)
(cf. 6141 – Curriculum Development and Evaluation)
(cf. 6164.5 – Intervention/Assistance Teams)
