Promotion

In accordance with the JCPS Middle School Progression, Promotion, and Grading Handbook, students will receive report cards each semester, for a total of two report cards. Meanwhile, each six weeks, students will receive progress reports indicating the students' status in each class.

In order to be promoted to the next grade and on to high school, the following benchmarks must be met.

Each year, all students must:

  • Pass two-thirds of all classes.
  • Pass math and language arts each year.
  • Complete a writing folder or writing portfolio each year.

By the end of eighth grade, all students must:

  • Achieve a rating of Apprentice or higher on the Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress (K-PREP) assessment for Reading.
  • Achieve a rating of Apprentice or higher on the K-PREP assessment for Writing Portfolio.
  • Achieve a rating of Apprentice or higher on the K-PREP assessment for On-Demand Writing.
  • Achieve a rating of Apprentice or higher on the K-PREP assessment for Math.

In the event the rating of Apprentice or higher on K-PREP assessments is not achieved, students must remediate in the specified areas through recovery modules.

Grading

Letter grades represent the following:

  • A: 93–100%
  • B: 86–92%
  • C: 79–85%
  • D: 70–78%
  • U: Below 70%
  • I: Incomplete

Make-Up Work

A student returning to school after an excused absence or a suspension may request make-up work within three days of his or her return to class. The make-up work will include only written daily work, tests, and/or major projects. The make-up work will be provided to the student as arranged with the teacher. The student will have the number of school days of absence or suspension plus one school day from the time he or she receives the make-up work to turn it in to the teacher. Teacher discretion may be used to handle a special situation.
