8th Grade Culmination Requirements

Culmination is rapidly approaching and there will be many activities for our eligible 8th grade students. Our students have been informed on the eligibility requirements for participation in the culmination and in the special activities. This has been communicated to parents as well as to our students in our continuous grade level meetings. Please familiarize yourself with the culmination and activity requirements listed below. Students have been advised to participate in various after-school intervention or homework assistance programs early in the school year if they anticipate difficulty in meeting academic requirements. A Culmination and Appeals Committee has been established at the school site to address concerns brought forward by parents and school staff. If a students does not meet minimum culmination requirements, an appeal request may be made in June.
