Promotion Requirements
   Credits Required to Attain 10th-, 11th-, or 12th-Grade Status  
 
On May 6, 1986, the Board of Education adopted a Grade Status Policy to provide additional motivation for students to earn enough credits to keep up with their classes. The Policy simply states:
  
        
 
To be a member of a particular class, a student must have earned the appropriate number of credits by the beginning of the school year. However, students who have not earned enough credits to be a member of a particular class at the beginning of the year may be promoted to that class at mid-year, with the rights and privileges thereof, if they earn a minimum of 30 credits more than the minimum required in the appropriate class by the end of the first semester.
       
The Board of Education establishes the following minimum credit requirements for a student to be in the following grades:

 Grade

 First Semester

 Second Semester 

 Tenth Grade

 85 Credits

 110 Credits

 Eleventh Grade

 140 Credits

 165 Credits

It is important for students to earn the required number of credits each semester in order to graduate on time. There are also other reasons for students to keep up with their classes. For example, the assignment of students to specific classes for yearbook pictures is based on the number of credits earned rather than the number of years a student has been in high school; also, at least one student in each couple must be a junior (11th grader based on credits earned) or a senior (12th grader based on credits earned) to be eligible to purchase a prom ticket.

It is extremely important that students who fail classes enroll in the very next summer school or after-school classes to make up their deficiencies. Students may also attend Adult Education or a local college to make up credits. See your counselor for more information and/or to obtain the necessary forms required to enroll.
