6. Do you hold children back from moving on to the next grade level?

As a general guideline, a student must receive an average grade of C- in all subjects in order to be promoted to the next grade level. Meeting these standards allows your child to be promoted to the next grade. If a student does not meet the standards for promotion he may be placed in the next grade if recommended by Teacher & Administrator. Placement in the next grade would mean the child will need assistance, through tutoring and parent intervention to succeed in the next grade.
