We move them on anyway, primarily for the reasons you mentioned. The second year is where it gets sticky, depending on course/regents pass/fail combination. We, too, are very reluctant to mix repeaters with ninth graders.

I know that there are a number of schools that offer a two-year Integrated Algebra program for the weaker math students. If a student fails year one of the program, where does that student go for year two? Do you move them on anyway? We have tremendous reluctancy making them repeat year one again, for we do not want to mix "repeaters" with true 9th graders in this instance. Any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
