The decision to promote a student to the next grade level shall be based on successful completion of the curriculum, attendance, and performance on the [Illinois Assessment of Readiness] and/or other assessments. A student shall not be promoted based upon age or any other social reason not related to academic performance. The administration shall determine remedial assistance for a student who is not promoted.
