Parent's Corner

Eighth grade students shall score at least at the "Basic" achievement level in either English language arts or mathematics and "Approaching Basic" in the other subjects in order to be promoted to the ninth grade. Students who do not meet the promotion standard after taking the eighth grade state assessments in the spring, following the completion of summer remediation, may be placed on a high school campus in the transitional ninth grade. For any student who recently completed the eighth grade and is transferring into the LEA from another state or country after the completion of summer remediation, the LEA shall review the student's academic record to determine appropriate placement in ninth grade or transitional ninth grade. Such placement shall occur no later than October 1 of each school year. 

  • Monroe City School System's Promotional Policy  (7th and 8th grades)

    A student must pass English, mathematics, and reading and either science or social studies.  Students must also pass an elective or physical education.

    Math, English, and reading are the three subjects that must be passed.  Failure of either of these alone is reason for summer school or possibly retention .
