Second Grade Expectation for Promotion

University Academy Second Grade 
Expectation for Promotion 

The purpose of promotions and retentions of students is to provide maximum consideration for the long-range welfare of the student and to provide an opportunity for each student to progress through school according to his/her own needs and abilities. Students advance annually from one grade level to another by demonstrating satisfactory academic achievement. Retention is possible if a student’s standards of academic achievement or social, emotional, mental, or physical development will not allow satisfactory progress in the next higher grade. University Academy does not offer social promotion.

At every grade level, there are specific requirements for promotion to the next grade. Parents/guardians who wish to appeal the decision of retention must first contact the Principal. If parents/guardians do not accept the decision at the school level, they may submit a written appeal to the Superintendent/designee within two (2) weeks after the close of school. Decisions on whether to promote, accelerate or retain a student with disabilities will be made in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and as required by other applicable law.
