ELL’s, the decision to promote or retain shall include consideration of the student’s language development; limited English
proficiency may not be the basis for retention (Chancellor’s Regulation A-501, p. 4).

Promotion Policy: English Language Learners
• Promotion criteria for ELLs is determined by two factors:
• Number of years enrolled in a United States School System
(USSS) (reflected on UYRE)
• Status as a Student with Interrupted Formal Education
(SIFE).
Business Rules for Calculating Months Enrolled in a
US School System
• Rules from NYSED Student Information Repository System (SIRS)
Guidance:
• One day of enrollment within a month equals one month of enrollment.
• Months of enrollment in Pre-K or ungraded elementary are to be
counted.
• For students that complete a school year and return the following fall,
summer months are counted in their total enrollment in US schools.
• A student’s enrollment will not reset to zero when they discharge to a
non-US school for more than a calendar year.
• Their enrollment will stop accruing when they discharge and
resume when/if they re-enroll.

Defining Gains for Grade 8 ELLs
June
• NYSESLAT and State ELA results will not be finalized in time to make
June promotion decisions.
• To determine if grade 8 ELLs enrolled 2 to four years, have made gains
in ELA schools will administer a promotion portfolio.
• The grade 8 Promotion Portfolio Manual contains special direction for
determining performance comparable to expected ELA gains based on
the student’s ELA promotion portfolio [performance
August
• ELA Gains (from the NYSESLAT and State ELA exams) will be
calculated centrally and loaded into ATS for August promotion
decisions.
Promotion Policy: Students with IEPs

If a student’s IEP indicates that
he/she is held to standard
promotion criteria (or if the
student’s IEP does not indicate any
promotion criteria), the standard
promotion criteria for the student’s
current grade level will be used to
make the promotion decision.
If a student’s IEP indicates
that he/she is held to
modified promotion
criteria1, the promotion
criteria in the IEP will be
used to make a promotion
decision.
Students who
participate in NYSAA
(do not participate in
State tests) are
exempt from the NYC

Policy.
Testing modifications are different from modified promotion criteria. If a student has testing
modifications, he/she could have either standard OR modified promotion criteria.

the reasons for exempting these students from the promotion policy, a positive outcome is expected in
June. Students may be retained with valid reasons and documentation provided by the school.
2 Given
Deadlines for Establishing Promotion Criteria
• The deadlines to establish promotion criteria for students with IEPs in
order for it to apply to 2012-2013 promotion decisions are1:
• January 31, 2013: For students with existing IEPs.
• May 20, 2013: For students initially referred to special education
and students with an existing IEP who are new to the NYC DOE.
• The Promotion Criteria Guidelines for Students with Disabilities in
Grades 3–8 provides information on how promotion criteria should
be determined, applied, and evaluated.
1These deadlines
are based on the date of the IEP conference. Promotion criteria established after
this date will be in effect for the 2013-14 school year.
Promotion Criteria Discrepancies
•
•
Schools were asked to review the Promotion Criteria Report
(RPCR) report to ensure students’ promotion criteria were
accurately reflected in ATS.
• When incorrect, schools were asked to update applicable
source systems (E.g. SESIS, CAP, UYRE)
Early May: Schools should review RPCR to ensure the accuracy of
promotion criteria for promotion decisions.
• If students promotion criteria is incorrect, schools should note
the discrepancy, confirm the correct promotion criteria in the
applicable source system (SESIS, CAP, UYRE) and escalate the
request for a change of promotion criteria to their network.
13
Promotion Criteria Overrides
• The CFN can help schools collect
and process promotion criteria
overrides.
Criteria Change Requests Should Include:
• Subject Line: Promotion Changes DBN E.g.
Promotion Changes 27Q124
• Attach tracker containing this information:
• Student Name (s)
• NYC ID(s)
• Current criteria and what the criteria
should be changed to.

Common Core Aligned NYS Assessments and
Student Promotion
• In past years, promotion decisions for students with standard criteria
were based on students’ state test performance levels (e.g. 1, 2, 3 or 4).
• Due to the changes in the tests, it is not possible to estimate students’
performance levels this year.
• Instead we will determine promotional cut scores based on student’s raw
scores.
• Raw scores are the total number of questions the student answered
correctly out of the total number tested.
• Standard promotion criteria students with raw scores in the lowest 10%
(approximately) will be recommended for retention and summer school.
• We expect this number to be similar to last year.
• While the overall performance levels on the 2013 tests may be lower, the
raw score required to meet promotion standards will be comparable to
the 2012 tests.
Common Core Aligned NYS Assessments and
Student Promotion
• As in year’s past, promotional cut scores will be calculated
centrally and loaded into ATS.
• School will be able to view promotional cut scores and other
promotion related student performance data on RASP.
• A promotional cut score of “met” can be used to satisfy students’
promotion requirements.
Release of Final NYS Test Results
• NYS test results are expected in late August
• The release of NYS test results will not impact promotion
decisions, as promotional cut scores will be used to make
promotion decisions for the 2012-2013 SY
• A decision to promote a student in June, based on the
promotional cut scores, will not be reversed if a student
did not achieve a Level 2 on the NYS test(s).

• Used to determine ELA gains in the absence of NYS ELA
and NYSESLAT results in June.
Students Recommended for Promotion Portfolios
• This year, students recommended for a promotion portfolio
will appear in red on PPSC.
• The recommendation is intended to:
• Help schools administer and prepare promotion portfolios in a
timely and targeted manner.
• Strategically balance the promotion portfolio workflow and
reduce the amount of portfolios that need to be prepared.
between the release of promotion cut scores and the deadline
for principals to enter promotion decisions (3 days).
Students Recommended for Promotion Portfolios
• Who is recommended for a promotion portfolio?
• Students who scored and Level 1 or Level 2 on the 2012 NYS exams
• Students who were promoted on the basis of a promotion portfolio for
the 2011-2012 SY (Appeal Code 1)
• Portfolio recommendations are not exhaustive.
• Note: Grade 3 students who have never taken the NYS exams and new
admits will likely not be flagged as recommended using the above
rationale.
• Schools should administer additional promotion portfolios to students
who they feel will not meet their promotion standards on the NYS
exams based on academic performance throughout the year.
Printing the Promotion Portfolio Summary Sheet
• Schools will print the
Promotion Portfolio
Summary Sheet from ATS
(PPSC) to record student’s
scores on the promotion
portfolio.
• The summary sheet will be
scanned into ATS (UPSC) to
populate promotion portfolio
data.

Teachers will need to download two documents for the applicable grades:
• Promotion Portfolio Manual
• Promotion Portfolio Blackline Masters
2. Print the student’s Promotion Portfolio Summary Sheet from ATS (PPSC).
3. Indicate whether the portfolio is being completed for ELA and/or math.
4. Administer the portfolio components using the Manual and relevant sheets from
the Blackline Masters.
5. Score student responses for each component and calculate overall score for the
promotion portfolio and record results on the Promotion Portfolio Summary Sheet.
6. Use the checklist included in the Blackline Masters to assemble the promotion
portfolio.
For August Promotion Decisions
1. Add the August Update Sheet and relevant evidence as outlined in the Manual.
(This sheet is not scanned. Staple the sheet to the student’ portfolio)
Steps to Prepare a Promotion Portfolio (Principal)
For June Promotion Decisions
1. Ensure that all necessary evidence is included in the promotion portfolio
•
Use checklist provided from the Blackline Masters.
2. Review the evidence submitted and make a final determination on the promotion portfolio
score (Level 1, Level 2, or High Level 2) and sign and date the bottom of the Promotion
Portfolio Summary Sheet.
3. Scan Promotion Portfolio Summary Sheet into ATS to populate portfolio results in ATS
(UPSC).
4. Deliver only portfolios of students who score High Level 2 and High Level 1 (for ELLs with
MT8 Criteria) for students whom you are recommending for promotion.
For August Promotion Decisions
1. Review the August Update Sheet and make a final determination on the portfolio score
(Level 1 or Level 2), and sign and date the bottom of the August Update Sheet.
•
If the overall portfolio score has changed, you can update the score on UPSC.
Example: Student work over summer school shows student has moved from Level 1 to
Level 2.
2. Deliver only portfolios of students who score Level 2 and for whom you are recommending
promotion to community superintendents.
Promotion Portfolios
• Principals should only submit high quality, complete promotion
portfolios for review
• All components should be included
• The classwork items should reflect the student’s best work
• It is recommended that the student work sample is from one of the school’s
Common Core units
• Superintendents review promotion portfolios and may confirm or
change the score of the promotion portfolio in ATS.
• Once superintendents review a promotion portfolio score in ATS,
schools will be prevented from printing a new Portfolio Summary Sheet
(PPSC) or changing promotion portfolio scores (UPSC).
TG8C: Core Course Outcomes and Class Performance
Grades 3-7
• Schools will enter ELA/ESL and math performance in ATS for ELLs
with multiple (MLT) criteria.
Grade 8
• Starting June 3, core course outcomes that are finalized in STARS
will transfer to ATS to populate the TG8C function.
