POLICY #5123
 
NORWICH FREE ACADEMY
PROMOTION AND RETENTION OF STUDENTS POLICY
 
The Board of Trustees has an established system of grading and reporting academic achievement to students and their parents and/or guardians. The Administration shall determine when promotion and graduation requirements are met. The promotion and retention of students shall be based on credits earned. The normal progression based on credits earned shall be as follows:
 
Grade Minimum credits required
 
10th grade (lower)        3.5 credits
11th grade (upper)        10 credits
12th grade (senior)       15.5 credits
 
Graduation                  22 credits
 
 
Students will normally progress annually from grade to grade.  Exceptions will be made, only, when in the judgment of guidance staff, such exceptions are in the best educational interest of the students involved. Exceptions can be made after prior notification and explanation to each student’s parent/guardian, but the final decision will rest with the school authorities.
