K-8 Promotion and Retention
K-8 promotion and retention is determined by multiple data points including but not limited to: content grades, NWEA MAP assessments, Interim Assessments, Reading Assessment, Write Score Assessments, i-Ready tests, Final Exams, and Milestones scores or a replacement for Milestones should the state test be suspended or waived. A historical perspective is also considered. Note: The Milestones results are more heavily weighted as this is our only teacher proctored assessment. Parents are provided an opportunity to appeal all retention decisions. See the GCA Promotion and Retention Policy.
