We are seeking to develop each student’s personal motivation to be a successful student. Because interests and gifts vary widely, we seek to challenge each student to make personal improvements according to their ability. Students in grades 6-8 are recognized for their academic and personal achievements twice yearly. Kinder-5th grade do not participate in the recognition awards.
A student is advanced to the next level/grade if all requirements of the Texas Catholic Conference Accreditation Commission and State of Texas have been met and the school agrees that advancement to the next level/grade is beneficial to the child. An on-going assessment program occurs throughout the school year at each grade level to provide information regarding the student’s promotion.
Policies regarding conditional promotion or retention apply when a student demonstrates academic difficulty throughout a school year. The following policies clarify the conditions under which a student is required to attend summer school/tutoring or repeat the grade. The goal of these policies is to provide additional opportunities to master the objectives.
Retention Policy for Kindergarten: a student is retained at the end of the school year and must repeat the grade if the student has a final report card average of U (Unsatisfactory Progress) in language arts or math. Social development is also considered in the overall evaluation of the child.
Retention Policy for First through Seventh Grade: a student is retained at the end of the school year and must repeat the grade if the student has a final report card average of N (Needs Improvement) in grades 1 - 2 or F in grades 3 - 8, in two of the following subjects: reading, English, or math.
At any time during the school year and preferably before the end of the first quarter, when a student is identified as being unsuccessful in his/her core subjects according to established indicators (academic performance, attendance records, observed relationships with faculty, staff, peers, etc.) the Diocesan policy will be initiated. The decision to retain rests with the school principal. This decision will be forwarded to the parents/ guardians and to the Director of Schools. A copy of the decision will be retained in the student’s cumulative file.
Eighth graders do not graduate and must repeat the grade at another school.
Conditional Promotion for First through Eighth Grade: a student who meets the following criteria on their report card is required to make up the deficiency.
- A student in grades 1-2 who receives a final average of N (Needs Improvement), or a grade of 69 or below in grade 3 in any one of the following subjects: reading, math, or English.
- A student in grades 4-8 who receives a final average of 69 or below in any one of the following subjects: religion, reading/literature, math, English, science, or social studies. The student is required to complete one of the following programs in the targeted area(s) in order to be promoted to the next grade and return to Prince of Peace: 1) summer school coursework from an accredited public or private school, or 2) twenty hours of tutoring by a degreed teacher certified in the subject to be tutored. In some cases, other special programs or summer work approved by the Principal may be permitted.
The resource lab is a multipurpose lab that provides additional services to help meet the different needs of certain students in our school population. These students are pulled out of the classroom and brought to the resource lab at designated times according to specific needs. The time spent in the resource lab is scheduled so as to not interfere with any new skills being taught in the classroom. Modifications are followed if a written and confirmed diagnosis of a learning difference is on file in the office.
