3 BENCHMARK GRADE PROMOTION POLICY Getting to the Next Grade The Chicago Public Schools elementary and high school promotion policy documents include a variety of measures to ensure that all students are prepared for the grade to which they are promoted. Elementary school promotion policy The School/Parent Guide to the Elementary Promotion Policy is an at-a-glance summary of the Elementary Promotion Policy for the school year. The guide assists schools and parents in determining the promotion status of students in benchmark grades 3, 6, and 8 and the requirements associated with each promotion status. CPS urges parents to closely monitor their child's academic progress to ensure he or she stays on track throughout the school year. Parents can assist their child in meeting the promotion criteria by reviewing homework assignments with him or her, requesting to see quizzes and tests, and maintaining communication with their child's school and teacher with regards to his or her academic progress. Students who do not satisfy the promotion criteria above will be required to attend and satisfactorily complete Summer School in order to attain promotion to the next grade.

14 The Chicago Public Schools does NOT recommend, endorse or sponsor ANY test preparation courses, study guides, or sample questions for the Selective Enrollment High Schools testing process. The admissions exams used for the Selective Enrollment High Schools are designed to assess your child's academic capabilities or reasoning and thinking skills. The Office of Access and Enrollment has not seen any direct correlation between student acceptance rates in Selective Enrollment High Schools and their participation courses offered by test preparation companies. Please note that the Office of Access and Enrollment (OAE) department receives feedback each year from parents whose children participated in a test preparation course and were not selected for any of their school choices. Let the buyer beware. NWEA PREPARATION COURSES- Not Free- at a cost to parents (not endorsed or recommended by Portage Park or CPS- for information purposes only) BRIGHT KIDS CHICAGO- ACE TUTORING- SELECTIVE PREP https://selectiveprep.com/ TESTING MOM- Are there Test Preparation Courses Available?
