Promotion Policy

2016 - 2017

KG1 – G5

Students in kindergarten to Grade 5 are automatically promoted.  We make recommendations for improvement and monitor the progress of these students; we provide the needed support in order to help the students reach the expected grade level standards as much as possible.  All this information is communicated to parents.  In a few cases some students might not be promoted to the next grade level if they have not acquired the skills needed to succeed in the future.

G6 – G12

  • Passing grade is 60% (D-)
  • Students need to have an overall final average above the passing grade in order to be promoted; otherwise they will be retained in the same grade level the following academic year.
  • If a student has an overall passing average and they fail Math and/or English, they will have to take a make-up exam before the beginning of the next academic year.
  • If a student fails any of the Math or English make-up exams, they will repeat the year.
  • High school students (G9-12) need to earn a certain number of credits in order to graduate. For the subjects included, they will have to have a passing grade (60% D-) in order to earn the credits needed to graduate.

Grading Scale

All grades are calculated in the Grade Point Average (GPA).  One credit course is calculated on a 4.0 scale.  In order to receive credits for an academic course, the students must obtain a minimum of D-.  Students must be present in the class a minimum of 80% of the scheduled class periods; otherwise they risk the chance of not being promoted to the next grade level.
