Promotion and Retention

Promotion and Retention decisions will be made based on the following achievement indicators:

  • Statewide Assessment Results—Standards-Based Assessment


  • School-District Assessment Results

  • Student Performance in School (Academic Grades)

  1. Students who are proficient on the achievement indicators will be promoted to the next grade level.

  2. Eighth grade students who are determined to be not proficient on the achievement indicators will not be promoted to the next grade level. The school district can retain the student without parent approval.

  3. Seventh grade students who are determined to be not proficient on the achievement indicators will not be promoted to the next grade level. The parent/guardian can refuse the retention for one year. If the student fails to meet proficiency the following year the student may be retained regardless of parent approval.

Schedule Changes
During the first week, students will attend the designated classes on their schedule cards. Schedule changes will be made during this time. If a student desires a schedule change, he/she must sign up with the counselors’ office, and counselors will call the student from class. Schedule changes are granted ONLY for the following reasons:

  1. The student is misplaced in a class and does not have the necessary skills or prerequisite.

  2. The student has taken the course previously and passed it.

Any other reason will require input from an administrator, counselor, and teacher before a decision is made. Absences and tardiness will be transferred with schedule changes.

High School Graduation Credit in Middle School

At the present time, Gadsden ISD offers four courses that students can take at the Middle School level that will earn them high school graduation credit. Those courses are:



  • English 1—Required for Graduation

  • PREP (NMSU Pre-Engineering Program)

  • Algebra—Required for Graduation

Qualifying Steps for Placement into Various Courses


To be eligible for placement into English 1 and Algebra 1, students must meet the following eligibility criteria:

Step 1: Students qualify automatically if their performance on the New Mexico Standards-based Assessment (NMSBA) receives a rating of Advanced in Language Arts and/or Mathematics.

Step 2: Students whose performance on the New Mexico Standards-based Assessment (NMSBA) receives a rating of proficient in Language Arts and/or Mathematics may still be considered. If the student is referred to the Student Assistance Team (SAT) for placement, the committee will consider the student’s grades and teacher recommendation and any other previous standardized tests. These students will qualify on the recommendation of the SAT after considering this information. If the student still does not qualify, the end of the book test in Pre-Algebra or a Language Arts Department test may be added to the student’s profile and the SAT may reconsider approval of the placement.
Credit for English 1 and/or Algebra 1 will be awarded as follows:


  1. Students earning 80-100% in English 1 and/or Algebra 1 as 8th-grade students are eligible for Honors English 2 and/or Honors Geometry.

  2. Students earning 60-79% in English 1 and/or Algebra 1 as 8th-grade students will be placed in English 2 and/or Geometry.


In order to receive High School elective credit for having taken two levels of Spanish, students must have passed with a 60% or better for both courses.

STUDENTS MAY NOT TAKE THESE COURSES AGAIN AT THE HIGH SCHOOL IF THEY HAVE ALREADY PASSED THEM AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL LEVEL (As per 6.30.2 NMAC- “A student cannot take the same course twice for credit.”)
PREP: New Mexico State University offers students the opportunity to participate in a summer pre-engineering program called PREP. Students must fill out an application for the program and be accepted by NMSU to be enrolled in PREP. Students can earn high school credit beginning the summer before they enter 7th grade, and can earn a maximum of three elective credits.
Credit for these courses will be transmitted by an official letter/transcript from the middle school and sent to the Office of the Associate Superintendent for Education and the corresponding high school principal and Counseling Department chair.
