Detailed Timeline

February: Promotion in Doubt letters sent.
When a student is at risk of not being promoted to the next grade, the school sends his or her parents or guardians a Promotion in Doubt letter. If you receive a Promotion in Doubt letter, immediately arrange a meeting with your child’s teacher, guidance counselor, and/or principal to discuss how to get help for your child.

May: Schools determine summer school recommendations.
Families of students recommended for summer school will receive letter notification and instructions for registration in May. Most students with disabilities are assessed in accordance with the same standard promotion criteria as general education students, unless modified promotion criteria have been indicated on student’s Individualized Education Program. 

Families must notify the Office of Pupil Transportation of alternate drop-off locations by May 22.

June: Promotion Decision letters sent and students register for summer school.
Families will receive promotion decision letter indicating whether students have been promoted or retained in June. Students not making adequate progress towards meeting promotion standards will be required to attend summer school. Students attend summer school at their home school if it is offered there, or at a school nearby. High school students who need credits in specific subjects may have to attend a non-local program to get the class(es) they need. 

Students in grades 6-12 who are not promoted in June may not participate in June graduation or stepping-up ceremony activities. If you have questions about participation in elementary school graduation activities, contact the principal of your child’s school.

Instructions for appealing the promotion decision will be included in the decision letter. Families should contact the school if they do not receive a letter or if a translated version is needed.

July: Summer school begins.
For more information see Going to Summer School.

August: High school Regents exams. Promotion decisions sent to families.
High school students take Regents exams in mid August. This exam is offered by the New York State Department of Education. Students who do not enroll in summer school, including private school students, may also take Regents exams in August.

Beginning on August 17, families will be notified by mail whether their child has been promoted. Instructions for appealing the decisions will be included in this letter. Families should contact the school if they do not receive a letter or if a translated version is needed.
