MDUSD Middle School 8th Grade Promotion/Activity Participation Requirements

Academic Requirements:

  • Students who receive F's at any point in the school year will be provided with intervention and may be placed on Academic Probation. Academic Probation may include: Weekly Progress Reports, Academic and/or Behavior Contract, and other requirements as determined by site administration and the site team. Should a student continue to fail even with interventions, they may become ineligible for Promotion as determined by the site team and clearly articulated to parents and the student.
  • Students with IEPs/504/or ELLs may be eligible based on individual performance goals as determined by their Case Manager or Administration.
  • No retained student shall participate in 8th Grade Activities including promotion.

Behavioral Requirements:

  • During the 4th quarter, two or more behavior infractions (referrals) or any suspensions from school will disqualify students from participating in end of the year 8th grade activities with a tiered approach. First infraction is loss of first event, next infraction equals the second event, etc.
  • Site administration may consider approving an individual student who has violated the behavioral requirements to participate in only the promotion ceremony if academic requirements are met and other means of correction have been satisfactorily completed. Case-by-case determination is made by the site team.

Literacy Corner

Earlier this school year, sixth graders wrote personal narratives. More than 30 stories were selected as finalists. All sixth graders were invited to participate in the peer review; the names of the committee members are below. After reading all of the stories, the peer committee met to determine which stories would best represent the talented writers at Valley View. Congratulations to all of these writers. You have much to be proud of!
