STUDENT RETENTION (K-8)
It is the policy of the Mountain Brook Board of Education that in order to be promoted, as student must demonstrate mastery of minimum standards as determined by his/her teacher(s).
When a question exists concerning the retention of a student, a decision shall be made by a committee composed of the principal of the school, the student’s teacher(s), and the child study team/intervention team.
If parents/guardians do not agree with the school’s decision about the retention, the parent/guardians can refer the decision to the child study team/intervention team. If consensus is not reached after the meeting with the child study team/intervention team, the parents/guardians will make the final decision about placement of their child. In the event that the decision of the parents/guardians is not in agreement with the recommendation of the child study team/intervention team, the parents/guardians are required to sign a form letter which acknowledges this fact.
