Adding Next Year Status to Report Cards

Promotion, Placement or Retention


To align with BOARD POLICY 5410: PROMOTION, PLACEMENT, AND RETENTION and its administrative guidelines, a placement comment has been made available to add to report cards.

The options include: 

  • Your scholar will be promoted for the 2021-2022 school year.

  • Your scholar will be placed in the next grade for the 2021-22 school year. 

  • Your scholar will be retained for the 2021-22 school year.

The appropriate comment must be added to each student individually.

UPDATE: On 5/28/2021 at approximately 11:30am, our Infinite Campus Support Team ran a script in the database that marked all Pre-K through 8th grade students as Promoted since this is the majority of our students. This means that schools only need to manually update those students who are Retained or Placed. Make sure that only ONE comment box is checked for each student. This should be done by a school official.

Logging Contact with Parents/Guardians


  • Follow the directions at the link below to create a Contact Log entry on the PLP log to show that you have communicated with your student’s family regarding their retention or placement for 2021-2022

    • PLP log entries are not required for students being promoted
