      For students with disabilities, the campus Annual Review and Dismissal/Individual Education Program (ARD/IEP) committee will determine the promotion status based on mastery of IEP goals and objectives and/or course requirements.

      If a student does not meet the promotion standards outlined above, the school will contact the parent/guardian regarding opportunities for the student to receive additional instruction.
