* HeldBackInSchool: Many of the characters were forced to repeat a grade to keep them in the show.

* HeldBackInSchool: Many of the characters were forced to repeat a grade to keep them in the show.show, more pronounced through seasons 5-6.
** Sean was originally introduced as having been held back due to getting into that violent incident at his old school.
** Spinner was the first, he was expelled during his 11th year for the prank on Rick and then later invited back but had to repeat the grade. Jimmy had to repeat senior year due to missing so much time doing physical therapy. Ashley decided to skip a year to intern over in England before coming back to finish up high school. Alex was a special case, she graduated but then did a "victory lap" to boost her grades for university.
** Drew dropped out during his senior year but decided to come back towards to end and had to repeat. Imogen flunked out and had to repeat. Mike Dallas was in no rush to graduate (possibly due to his Ice Hounds duty) so he decided to repeat senior year as well.
* Tori off-handledly mentions that she was held back one year, which is why she was more "developed" than the other girls in her grade.
* Esme misses a whole month of school during her VillainousBreakdown and doesn't make the cut for graduation.

* TeenPregnancy: The show has covered ''all'' the bases for this trope: Manny (terminated the pregnancy), Liberty (put the baby up for adoption), Mia (raising her child), Anya (took plan B before anything happened), Jenna (raises the baby for a while before giving it up for adoption), Clare (miscarriage), and Lola ([[spoiler: had an abortion]]). Emma is [[Series/DegrassiJuniorHigh the result of one]], and her mother had a second unplanned pregnancy (albeit at around age 30). Dallas also had a baby with his girlfriend when he was 15. Finally, Jonah reveals in Next Class season 4 that he has a daughter but isn't allowed to meet her.

** J.T.'s living situation ''could'' count as this. He mentions living with both his parents in earlier seasons, only to be living with his grandmother come season 5. His parents are never mentioned again after about season 2, and don't even appear at ''his own funeral''.
** Paige once called the school in her mother's voice, portraying a possibly Eastern European accent. When Paige's mom shows up, she has no accent.



* DisappearedDad: Several characters have deceased or estranged fathers.

to:

* DisappearedDad: Several characters have deceased or estranged fathers. Or, in the case of Zoe, don't even ''know'' who their father is.



* HappilyAdopted:
** [[spoiler: Holly J]] takes the news of [[spoiler: her]] adoption pretty well.
** Derek, at one point, mentioned he was adopted.
** Kendra, Spinner's sister, never seemed to have any angst about being adopted (though that may have something to do with being a SatelliteLoveInterest to Toby). Also, Spinner is ''very'' protective of her.



* HighSchoolDance

to:

* HighSchoolDanceHighSchoolDance: A must with a teen drama. In fact, a lot of important events have happened at a school dance on this show, most notably [[spoiler: the shooting intended for Drew, but ended up wounding his stepbrother Adam]].



* MissingMom: Terri (died), Craig (died), Jenna (out of the picture)

to:

* MissingMom: Terri (died), Craig (died), Jenna (out of the picture)picture), Lola (left), Sean (estranged, [[SubvertedTrope then moved back in with her]], only to [[DoubleSubversion return to Toronto]]), Zoe (kicked her out). J.T. is an odd example, given the fact [[ContinuitySnarl he mentioned he was living with his mother at one point, but she's never mentioned again and he is shown living with his grandmother, instead.]] It's actually not known what happened to Connor's parents, so his mother could fall under this ([[DisappearedDad his father would fall under its SpearCounterpart]]).



* MistakenForTerrorist: Done in a Very Special Episode with a Muslim girl, who is teased and harassed by Paige and Hazel. The girl's stand at International Day is vandalized, and Hazel reveals that she's Somali, not Jamaican, and she too was MistakenforTerrorist before she came to Degrassi. The Muslim character and International Day, however, are never spoken of again.

* TheCheerleaderTheCheerleader: Paige, Manny, Jenna, Mia, Zoe, Chantay, Darcy.



* SadistTeacher: Mr. Perrino

to:

* SadistTeacher: Mr. PerrinoPerrino, at least to Derek and Danny. Not so much in later seasons.



* SchoolPlay

to:

* SchoolPlaySatelliteCharacter:
** Hazel was this to Paige and Jimmy. Hazel was Paige's best friend, who received exactly one major storyline on the show...and that was before she was PromotedToOpeningTitles! Even after her promotion in season 3, Hazel's screentime gradually lessened to the point where she was just...Jimmy's girlfriend and Paige's best friend.
** Chantay was this to numerous characters, when she wasn't a LivingProp.
** In the latest generation, Vijay and Baaz are just there to be the friends of Hunter and Yael, having had no major storylines in the ''four'' seasons they have been on the show (as of fall 2017).
* SatelliteLoveInterest: Blue is probably the biggest example. Introduced as the artistic love interest of Holly J, he was just there for Holly J to have a boyfriend yet still had a spot in the main credits for two seasons (despite appearing in about 11 of the combined ''45'' episodes of the two seasons he appeared in). Eventually, when the two broke up, [[DemotedToExtra he had only a couple of more scenes (without any lines, no less)]] before being taken by the [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome Degrassi Black Hole]].
* SchoolPlay: ''Romeo and Jules'', anyone?
