Follow-Up Study of Overage Seventh Grade Junior High School Students Socially Promoted to the Ninth Grade in High School for School Year 1974-75. Salinas Union High School District, Instructional Services Division Research Report No. 75-8.
Salinas Union High School District, CA.
In the later part of school year 1973-74, both of the district's junior high schools surveyed their respective seventh grade student rosters to identify those boys and girls who were overaged for the grade. The junior highs formed committees composed of administrators, counselors, and the school psychologist to review and make a recommeendation for or against social promotion. Prior scholastic performance, test scores, personal acquaintance and impressions, and professional opinion regarding each student's prospect for a successful transition and adjustment were discussed prior to the final decision to promote. Accordingly, 46 students were socially promoted at the end of the seventh grade into the ninth grade entering high school in the fall. Three aspects of the socially promoted high school experiences were evaluated at the end of their first year: attendance, scholastic performance, and need for counseling and guidance. (Author/SJL)
