Oak Middle School is guided by the Shrewsbury Public Schools policy on promotion and retention, which states that the principal may retain students if interventions have not been successful and, in the principal’s judgment, the student is not prepared to succeed in the next grade (see the district web site for full text of the policy).  Students who are failing any of the core subjects (grades of less than 2.0 in half or more of the standards in a subject) may be required to successfully complete summer school to be promoted to the next grade.  Attendance may also be considered in the decision to retain a student.  The principal will notify parents of possible retentions via letter by May 1; the principal’s decision to retain a student may be appealed to the superintendent.
