If you believe your child needs to repeat a grade or course, you as a parent have the right to make this decision but you must act quickly. You can find the steps you must take at this Texas Education Agency https://tea.texas.gov/texas-sc...
Given the disruptions of the 2020-2021 school year, the Texas Legislature has given parents new rights to make this decision for the upcoming school year. For students in grade 4 and above this option only exists for the 2021-22 school year, but for pre-k through grade 3 the option is permanent. The decision as to whether your child needs to repeat a grade or course in the upcoming school year is your decision to make as a parent.
- For children in grades 1-8:
- Repeating may be right for your child if he/she struggled learning while remaining virtual most of the year
- For students who took high school courses:
- Repeating one or more courses may be right for your child if he/she struggled in a foundational course (e.g. Algebra I or computer science) and is worried about being successful in higher level courses
This page offers resources to help you make this decision.
