Promotion / Retention
California Law (Ed Code ) and RCSD Board Policy specify minimum performance levels, which must be met by a student for promotion to the next grade level. A Promotion Review Team (PRT) consisting of teacher, principal and parent will consider strategies of intervention and support for students considered at risk of retention. This review will occur in conjunction with the fall parent conference. Specific to this school year only, parents can request to retain their child: A request for retention must be made in writing within the first 30 days of school and does not guarantee that the student will be retained.
