Grade Assignment of Students
While the Board of Education recognizes that parents have the right to request a change of grade for their child, student grade placement shall be determined at the school level by the appropriate administrator. The decision shall be based on the student's general achievement, and the mental, physical, emotional and social maturity of the child.
Students will normally progress from grade to grade or level to level. Exceptions may be made when, in the judgment of the certified staff, such exceptions are in the best educational interest of the students. In the case of an exception, the parent or guardian will be notified and will have an opportunity to discuss the decision with a member(s) of the professional staff. The final decision for class placement will rest with the school authorities
