The Board of Trustees expects students to progress through each grade level within one school year. Toward this end, instruction shall be designed to accommodate the variety of ways that students learn and provide strategies for addressing academic deficiencies as needed.

Students shall progress through the grade levels by demonstrating growth in learning and meeting grade-level standards of expected student achievement.

(cf. 6011 - Academic Standards)

(cf. 6146.5 - Elementary/Middle School Graduation Requirements)

(cf. 6170.1 - Transitional Kindergarten)

Teachers shall identify students who should be retained or who are at risk of being retained at their current grade level as early as possible in the school year and as early in their school careers as practicable.

Students shall be identified for retention on the basis of failure to meet minimum levels of proficiency, as indicated by grades as well as multiple measures in place within the district.

(cf. 5121 - Grades/Evaluation of Student Achievement)
