During their scheduled April Board meeting, the Board approved the following Promotion/Credit criteria for Burke County Public School students.

*Promotion for students in grades Pre-K through 8th:
All students in grades Pre-K through 8th will be promoted to the next grade. The standards missed at the end of this school year will be taught at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year.
