13.1. For elementary education and at the end of the first year of secondary school, the school principal may, exceptionally, in a student’s interest, allow the student to remain for a second year in the same class if it is evident from the student’s individualized education plan that such a measure is, among possible measures, a measure more likely to facilitate the student’s academic progress.
The measure, which may be used only once during elementary education, must not result in the student being promoted to secondary school after more than 6 years of elementary school studies, subject to the power of the principal, at the end of that period, to admit the student to an additional year of elementary school studies in accordance with the Act.
