6009 Grade Placement of Transfer Students

6009

Grade Placement of Transfer Students

Subject to a determination on grade placement based on the criteria set forth below, a student transferring from an accredited school will generally be placed at the grade level that is comparable to the placement in the school from which the student is transferring.  Temporary placement may be made until a student's records are received to verify the placement.

 

Elementary Level Students 

The appropriate level of placement for elementary level students may be determined by, but not limited to, consideration of the following information:


 

•              Chronological age.

•              Previous public school or private school experience.

•              Diagnostic test data.

•              Achievement test data.

•              Criterion referenced test data.

 

Secondary Level Students 

The appropriate level of placement for secondary students may be determined by, but not limited to, consideration of the following information:


 

 

•              Chronological age.

•              Previous public school or private school experience.

•              Standardized achievement test data.

•              Criterion referenced test data.

•              Final examination test data.

•              Diagnostic test data.

 

A student transferring into the school district in grades 9-12 will be responsible for meeting all graduation requirements to earn a high school diploma.  Credits earned in grades 9-12 at an accredited school will be counted toward high school graduation requirements.  Credits from a home school and/or a non-accredited school will not be counted toward high school graduation requirements.

 

The district administration, in conjunction with the building principal, will determine the appropriate grade level/credit status of a student transferring from a foreign country.
