Toby Johnson Middle School Promotion / Retention Policy

At Toby Johnson we share a genuine concern about the academic, social, and emotional growth of our students.  However, the State of California has mandated that all students be held accountable for mastering a core set of academic standards before they are allowed to promote to the next grade level.  In recommending grade retention, we will examine a combination of factors that will include grades, attendance, and teacher recommendations as well as the social and emotional growth of students.  This combination of assessment will be used to recommend promotion and/or retention at TJMS. 


The school year is divided into four (4) 9-week terms with students enrolled in four (4) classes per term.  Each of these classes, if successfully completed by the student, earns the student 5 credits.  Therefore, students will be able to earn 20 credits per term and a total of 80 credits for the school year.  All 7th grade students need to successfully complete a minimum of 65 credits overall to promote to the 8th grade.  If a student earns fewer than 65 credits before beginning 8th grade, he/she will not be able to participate in the 8th grade promotion ceremony.  All 8th grade students need to complete a minimum of 130 credits overall to promote to the 9th grade and participate in the promotion ceremony.

Our Goal for Students...


We strive to equip our students with the skills to become positive and productive young leaders.  Through our counseling department we give our students a 7-12 academic and personal/social support program, along with career/college guidance to help them have a successful middle school experience.


How to set up a meeting with your Counselor

An appointment may be scheduled with your child's counselor via e-mail or by calling the school at 714-8181.  Students may also fill out a "Counselor Request Form" and they will be seen at an appropriate time.  Counselors are available during lunch, before, and after school.
