PROCEDURE PROCEDURE

Reference:
Section 10.15 - Policy

 

Elementary  School
The Principal, in consultation with District administration, will determine whether there should be any change in the grade-level placement of the student.  In making such determination, the Principal will be guided by teacher recommendations and consultation with the parent(s).

Assignment of a student to classes shall be the responsibility of the Principal, in consultation with District administration, after consideration of the student's grade-level assignment, completion of any prerequisites, the student's achievement, and any classroom limitations or class-size guidelines.

High  School
The Principal, in consultation with District administration, shall establish the number of credits needed for a student to be placed at a particular grade level.  The determination of grade level will be made based upon progress toward graduation requirements normally expected of a student to graduate in a four-year period.  Students will be assigned to grade levels based upon the credits earned and accepted by the District.

The Principal of the high school will prepare a list of prerequisites for classes offered in the high school, specifically stating grade level and credit or achievement required before a pupil can take a specific class or subject.  Also included shall be a statement of priority for assignment to a class or subject - with classroom limits based upon number of sections offered or scheduled - and/or the class-size guidelines.  The list developed will be submitted to the Superintendent for approval.  All subjects offered in the high school will be included in the list.

The Principal of the high school will designate responsibility for determining the grade level and specific classes or subject assignment of a student.  The assignments shall be made consistent with policy, procedures, and approved school guidelines.
