Reporting Student Progress
All rules and regulations for reporting student progress have been approved by the Sylvan Union School District. They reflect the education code of the State of California as well as the policies of this school district.
In order to complete graduation requirements, students must fulfill the following:
- Achieve a minimum cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 1.5 for 6th-8th grades
- Pass the 7th grade Minimum Proficiency tests
- Pass all required courses for 8th grade
Report cards are mailed home three times per year. They are issued approximately 1-2 weeks following the end of each trimester. Progress reports are issued mid-trimester to all students receiving a grade of C- or lower. Parents are also notified if student achievement is exhibiting a downward trend. Teachers may issue additional progress reports at any time that it is determined appropriate.
Parents are encouraged to request meetings with teachers when a student's progress is less than expected or desired.
Many teachers send home email progress reports on a regular basis, be sure we have the correct email address in the computer.
