Questions about student promotion decisions?

CTS 2013 Student Promotion Header

Whether your child took exams in April and may have performed poorly, or she/he opted out of State exams this year, your school may be in the process of assembling, reviewing, or submitting a promotion portfolio to the district.  There are several aspects of this portfolio review process you should learn about, including the ability to refuse a school’s recommendation to attend summer school and your right as a parent to appeal a district’s decision to retain your child.
