STUDENTS. MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR PROMOTION. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Requires state laws and education guidelines be amended to provide all students in grades one through eight be advanced to next grade upon passing 60 percent of their course work with a grade of D or better. Students not meeting this condition, and those who fail English or mathematics two consecutive years, must repeat grade until successful passage. Each school is responsible for determining grading criteria. Each school must establish committee of parents, teachers and administrator to decide, on yearly basis, if special education students are subject to this measure's requirements. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Long-term state school costs in the tens of millions of dollars to hundreds of millions of dollars annually due to increases in the number of students repeating grades one through eight.
