8th Grade Promotion Participation Policy for 2023-2024 NEW!

At the start of the 2023-2024 school year, the Plainfield 202 Middle Schools will have new policies to enforce.  One of which concerns 8th grade Promotion. The Handbook language now states:


Promotion Participation: Participation in promotion ceremonies is a privilege and not a right.  Based on the inappropriate conduct of a student, the administration reserves the right to not allow the student the privilege of participating in promotion ceremonies.  Students are expected to display proper behavior and good citizenship through the last day of student attendance.

Academic: Failing two or more “courses” for the academic year may result in being excluded from the 8th Grade Promotion.  Failing a “course” means that the student has received two or more Fs in a single class/course for the academic year (four quarters) in a single course.  A “course” is considered any class that meets all four quarters (math, language arts, science, social studies, physical education.

Attendance: A student may be deemed ineligible to attend Middle School Promotion if they have accumulated 41 days of absences or 25% of the academic year.  Note: Each Exclusion Case will be reviewed by the building principal prior to the final exclusion decision. 

We will review these expectations with your student throughout the school year.  We will also be in contact with you if your student might lose the privilege of participating in the promotion ceremony. 

More news to come throughout the summer.  If you have any questions about this policy or anything else, please do not hesitate to contact the Indian Trail Main Office.
