El Dorado Union HSD | AR 5111 Students
Graduation from the 8th grade prior to admission to the ninth grade of this District means that the student has shown fitness for high school work as evidenced by fulltime attendance in a school program for the entire semester immediately preceding the student's graduation from 8th grade, and successful completion of 8th grade graduation standards.
Occasionally, 7th grade students will seek to accelerate their entrance into high school bypassing their 8th grade year.
If a middle school student or parent chooses to accelerate a student(s progress to high school, the middle school, working in cooperation with the student and parent, should transfer the 7th grade student into the 8th grade curriculum during the second semester of their 7th grade year in order to provide access to the essential 8th grade standards in English and mathematics.
Students should not expect to transfer directly from the 7th grade to the 9th grade, bypassing the essential learning of the 8th grade program.
