Promotion Requirements

7th and 8th grade students must meet all SVUSD promotion requirements in order to promote to the next grade level.

PROMOTION REQUIREMENTS:
  • GPA must be at least 1.50 for the year
  • At least 1.0 GPA in MATH for the year
  • At least 1.0 GPA in ENGLISH for the year
  • No more than 3 "F" grades in core classes for the year

A student not meeting the above requirements may be promoted to the next grade level if all of the above requirements are successfully completed during summer school, provided summer school is offered. If not, pupils may be retained.

In the case of a fiscal crisis where state and local funding does not allow for summer school, the superintendent or designee may allow students, who need to attend summer school to meet promotion requirements, to be socially promoted to the next grade level subject to the existing conditions for social promotion. Socially promoted students will not be permitted to participate in the promotion ceremony or related activities.

8th Grade Students need to meet ALL promotion requirements in order to participate in the promotion ceremony and ALL end of year activities, including the promotion dance and 8th grade trip.
