Based on the assumption that each student at the middle school level is appropriately placed at a level where he/she is capable of completing the required work, the following applies:
Any student who fails three core subjects will repeat the grade. (Subjects include: English, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science, Health, Phys. Ed. & grade 8 only-Foreign Language).
Any student who fails any two core subjects may not be promoted unless both subjects are passed in summer school (core subjects include English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Health & Phys. Ed.).
Any student who fails any one core may not be promoted unless that subject is passed in summer school (core subjects include English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies).
Failure is 64 or below (65 is passing).
Failure of three (3) core subjects will require repeating the grade (core subjects include English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Health, Phys. Ed.).
If a student receives a 58 or below in any core subject, he/she will not qualify for summer school.
Any failure requires a summer school grade of 70 or higher for promotion.
If there are circumstances that warrant additional consideration, the principal shall make the final decision about placement, after consulting with the student's teacher/s and guidance counselor.
