Promotion Requirements


Delhi Middle School Promotion Requirements for all Learning Environments

Eighth grade students must meet the following criteria in order to be promoted to 9th grade and receive a Certificate of Promotion:

  • No more than 4 F’s in 7th and 8th grade in any core subject area.

  • Satisfactory achievement progress in Reading, English Language Arts, and Mathematics.

Requirements to participate in eighth grade promotion activities:

Students who meet the following requirements will be invited to participate in promotion activities.  These activities include a dance, promotion ceremony and eighth grade trip.

It is very important for students to understand that participation in the Promotion Ceremony is a privilege and not a right:

  • Cumulative GPA of 2.0 in 7th and 8th grade years.

  • A student will not miss more than 15 days of school (major injuries/chronic illnesses can be reviewed by the Student Study Team consisting of principal, associate principal and counselor upon parent request).

  • No home suspensions within 30 school days of the promotion ceremony.

  • No more than 4 F’s in 7th and 8th grade in any core subject.

  • All obligations to school will be cleared before attaining the Certificate of Promotion. 

Students are required to participate in remediation for “F” grades in core subjects.  Remediation classes will be aimed at helping students who are at risk of not being promoted.

Students who are at risk of not meeting promotion criteria will be referred to the Response to Intervention (RTI) Team for appropriate support and intervention services.
