Perkins-Tryon School District offers a Proficiency- Based-Promotion (PBP) option for all students in 1st through 12th grades. Pursu- ant to Section 6 of liB 1017, PBP provides the oppommiW for students tO move forward in their educational endeav- ors by subject, course, and/or grade level based on mast 7 of the Oklahoma Priority Aca- demic Student Skills (PASS) and curriculum objectives of the Perkins-Tryon School District. The student who can suc- cessfully be moved ahead under the PBP guidelines will be able to demonstrate, in the absence of instruction, content knowledge, skills, and the application of those skills. Parental involvement is critical in the Proficiency- Based-Promotion process, as is consideration of the student's developmental, social, emotional and intel- lectual needs. Students who make appli- cation for Proficiency -Based- Promotion will be given a cri- terion exam. If passed at the 90% or higher level, student applicants may then complete a performance component. Successful completion at the 90% or higher level on both assessments is required. The ............ : !~ students' individual academic needs will be met by one of the following means: individual- ized instruction, independent study, cross grade grouping, cluster grouping, correspon- dence courses and concurrent enrollment. Credit earned in high school level courses will count toward meeting gradu- ation requirements. Credit will be noted as "Proficiency by Exam-Pass" with no grade assigned. No record ofunsuc- cessful attempts at PBP will be maintained in the student's permanent school record. Application forms are avail- able in the superintendent's office. Completed application forms must be returned to the superintendent's office by 10: 00 a.m., Monday, August 2, 2010. Testingis scheduled for Thursday, August 5th, at 10: 00 a.m. at the high school.
