So What is an over-age student?

An over-age student is generally classified as one who has been held back two or more times.

Three major factors students become over-age?

1. Α Student’s schooling is interrupted. Factors such as domestic violence, foster care placement; frequent family relocation can cause a student to fail to meet requirements for promotion.

 

2. Αppropriate academic supports are not provided. Students who need special education services, counseling, or other intensive supports fall further and further behind if these supports re not provided completely and consistently.

 

3. A student who needs to change schools cannot find an alternative placement. Students who need to change schools for reasons related to safety, discipline, or family circumstances sometimes find themselves discharged from their old school with nowhere else to go.
