At-risk student

So this is my first year teaching and I have one student who is severely behind on what he needs to know for my class, which is a class required for graduation.

Hes somehow in the 12th grade, but two years ago, according to his record, he was in the 7th grade, then shot up to the 11th grade. Hes 16 years old and he turns 17 later this school year (which would mean he should be in 11th grade).

Hes listed as RTI tier 3 and he informed me (almost unintentionally) that he had been in jail, which may have stunted his progress.

My question: does it sound like an administrative error that hes in the 12th grade or possibly like someone on the school board is trying to just toss this kid aside?

Ive seen enough of his file to know that hes never really had much stability even when he was in elementary school. I want to help him, but I cant let my concern for him and his deficiencies cause me to hamper the rest of the class hes in.
