In order to be promoted to the next grade level, students must pass the following courses for the year: Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science. Any student who fails 3-4 of the core courses will automatically repeat the grade level in which these courses were taken. Students who fail 1-2 courses will have the opportunity to make them up in an approved summer school program. Also subject to approval of the Board of School Directors is the fact that failure to make up failed subjects will result in a student repeating the grade level in which those courses were taken. Eighth grade students who fail a world language or math will be recommended to repeat the course at the High School.
