I chose the term ‘probation’, because it fits better in the transcript as an isolated term:
So the ‘expression’ - ‘Aprovado por depêndencia’ (poor Portuguese) was translated into English as **Pass after Probation**.
However, Donna, your suggestion is perfect (in my point of view) in different contexts related to education and learning and I used it to translate the following sentence that explains the school policy with regards to Fail/Pass and other issues (very tiny chars) that I had not read when I posted the term. .. My bad…
Portuguese: ‘A repetência ou ‘retenção’ pode acontecer a partir da 1a série....’
English: Failure or **pending completion** may take place from 1st grade onwards..
IOU one :)

Explanation: This does not answer your question which is "aprovado por dependencia." Since you are dealing with elementary school, it MAY be that the person passed after repeating the entire course. Or perhaps only after retaking the exam or turning in some project very late.
I did not know that this concept is applied at the elementary school level. It used to be mainly in universities, and has now been extended to high school - so I have been told. At that level it has to do with being allowed to the next level of that subject under certain circumstances even if he got an "incomplete" (nickname "depe") in a course that is a prerequisite for the later one, but eventually he'll have to correct that status before going on to a level higher than that next level.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi Donna! Thanks! I have never seen a 'dp' in ES either :) I know there is a new system in High School but they put it euphemistically ... By analyzing this transcript, I have the impression the usage of the term 'dp' is similar to what they apply at College and Universities.. Wish I had had this kind of luck :)
