The 8th grade promotion ceremony will be held on Friday, June 23 at 2 pm on the Dwyer front lawn.
The Promotion Newsletter, which is available below in both English and Spanish, contains information about promotion, dates for events leading up to promotion, and instructions on how to purchase your student’s promotion package.
In order to receive a Certificate of Promotion or be allowed to participate in any promotional activities students must meet the following conditions:
Any student who has attended less than one semester in Huntington Beach City School District will be considered for promotion by the site administration.
Each eighth grade student who is not eligible to receive a certificate of promotion or participate in any promotional activities shall conference with the student’s parent and an administrator. A written notification shall be provided to parents explaining the reasons for the ineligibility.
Students in grades six thru eight will be retained if they have not met the District standards regarding promotion or they have not satisfied the conditions of a “conditional promotion.” Please visit HBCSD website to view the student retention brochure, under Educational Services.
