Summary

In the summer of 1984, the Pennsylvania Department of Education conducted a survey of promotion policies and practices in Pennsylvania schools in response to a request for information from the State Board of Education. This document presents the major findings from the analysis of data from the 423 school districts that completed the survey. A series of tables, with appended discussions, provide demographic information on the following: (1) distribution of respondents by class of district; (2) 1983-84 retentions; (3) 1983-84 retention rates (by grade level, statewide average, and district range); (4) written policies and guidelines; (5) credits required to pass; (6) district policy on the number of retentions; and (7) districts where promotion is permitted regardless of academic achievement. A concluding discussion identifies exemplary programs and practice related to promotion/retention in various schools throughout the state. Five appendixes provide instrumentation for the survey and selected narrative comments in response to survey questions, along with promotion and retention policies of the Commodore Perry School District, the Bellefonte Area School District, and the Shenandoah Valley School District.
