Grading

Pupil progress reports are the result of daily evaluation of your child. Parents can also check their child’s progress through the Canvas and Infinite Campus system. Report cards will be issued four times a year.

Grades shall be defined as follows in grades 6-12:

A – Firm command of knowledge. High level of skill development. Displays consistent excellence.
B -Command or knowledge beyond the required average skill development. Consistent performance beyond basic requirements.
C – Command of required knowledge. Demonstrates ability to use required skills. Produces what is required.
D – Displays inconsistency in command of required knowledge and skills.
F – Most of basic concepts and skills not learned. Lacks prerequisites needed for later learning.

Grades shall be defined as follows in grades TK-5:

6 Advanced – Student’s application of skills and/or concepts goes beyond what is taught in class.

5 Highly Proficient -Student’s independent achievement is at grade level or beyond grade level standards/expectations.

4 Proficient – Student’s independent achievement meets grade level standards/expectations.

3 Near Proficient -Student’s independent achievement does not consistently meet grade-level standards/ expectations but does at times.

2 Progressing -Student’s independent achievement shows inconsistent use of skills but is progressing toward meeting grade-level standards/expectations.

1 Needs Intervention -Student shows little or no evidence of meeting grade-level standards/expectations even with continual support.

When all questions on an assessment are selected-response (e.g., multiple-choice), the following percentages will be used for scoring:

6 – 90-100%
5 – 80-89%
4 – 70-79%

3 – 60-69%
2 – 24-59%
1 0-33%

In grades 9-12 the class rank will be determined using the GPA Plus formula. Additional weight for Advanced Placement and courses listed below is added to the student’s unweighted GPA after its typical calculation (+ .02 per course per semester). Additional weight (+.01) is added for taking 7.5 credits or more per semester and earning a 2.0 grade point average for that semester.

  • Advanced Calculus
  • Calculus I & II
  • Calculus with Analytical Geometry
  • College Physics I & II
  • English Composition I & II
  • Human Anatomy & Physiology I & II

High school classes taken during middle school will be counted as high school credit toward graduation, and will be computed into the high school GPA.

Appeal Timelines:
If a parent or student believes a report card grade is unfair, the teacher must be contacted about the concern within two weeks of the end of the grading period. The teacher will respond within two weeks. If the concern is not resolved, parents must contact the principal within two weeks after the teacher’s decision. The principal will respond within two weeks. If the parent wants District administration to review a decision, the request must be submitted within two weeks of the principal’s decision.
