Grade Promotion & Placement Policy

Promotion to the next grade level is determined during the summer (prior to the start of school) and will not be adjusted during the school year upon completion of credit-bearing semester-long courses or blending (repeated) courses.

Grade level is determined by the number of credits a student has earned. The year that a student enters 9th grade does not determine grade level or graduation year (but rather determines graduation requirements).

  • Grade 7-completion of 6th grade
  • Grade 8-completion of 7th grade

  • Grade 10-must have earned a minimum of 5.5 credits
  • Grade 11-must have earned a minimum of 11 credits
