2018-2019 Proposed Handbook Changes
A proposed change to the handbook promotion/retention policy is due to changes in the Literacy Promotion Act for the 2018-2019 school year. Students in the 3rd grade during the 2018-2019 school year must make a level 3 to pass the 3rd grade MAAP-ELA to be promoted to the 4th grade. This means students must make a 27 on the test to be promoted. Students in the 3rd grade this year must make an 18 on the test to be promoted. The changes in promotion/retention will allow parents to track student progress to know if they are growing in each grade and if they are prepared to pass the 3rd grade test in the future.
Also included in the handbook changes are updates to the bullying policy based on recent legislation and updates to the discipline policy dealing with vandalism.
