SJE Board Policy 2421 — Instruction

Administrative Procedure

Promotion/Retention

 

Prior to the end of the third quarter when possible the teacher will confer with the principal regarding any student who should be considered for retention. Parents/ guardians shall be invited to meet with the principal and teacher. Information will be presented to explain the student's progress to date. Parents will be advised on how they might assist the student during the balance of the school year.

At least two (2) weeks prior to the end of the school year, the parent, principal and teacher will again meet to review the latest progress and determine if the student's need would be best served by promotion or retention. If the parent wishes the student to be promoted without regard to the school's recommendation, the parent(s) will be asked to complete a form reflecting the parent's opinions. Such request will be reviewed by a review board consisting of the superintendent, a board member and one non-involved certificated teacher. If the review committee upholds the recommendation then the school reserves the right to retain the student.
