Promotion Requirements

CRITERIA FOR 8TH GRADE PROMOTION, END-OF-THE-YEAR ACTIVITIES, AND RETENTION

In an effort to help middle school students be more successful in middle school, to help them develop and maintain good study habits and focus, and to provide a more structured transition from elementary school to high school, the criteria for promotion and end-of-year activities are listed below:

  • Pass English and Math each trimester
  • Pass 5 of 6 classes each trimester or all classes, if on a minimum day schedule
  • Satisfy school requirements for citizenship points, school fines, detentions, lost textbooks, discipline, etc.

In addition, per Assembly Bill 1626, Education Code 48070, 48070.5, and Board Policy 5123, students in grade 8 will be retained if they fail both English and Math Trimester 3. Students retained in the 8th grade will be recommended for transfer to an Opportunity Program to be held at Conejo Valley High School.

Students who fail, or are in danger of failing, either English or Math, must participate in an intervention program Trimester 3 in order to be considered for promotion.
