A progress report will be mailed home after 4 ½ weeks of every 9-week grading period and a conference may be requested at that time. Parents and guardians may request a weekly progress report thereafter based on the quality of the student’s work.
Report cards are handed out at the end of every 9 weeks and final report cards will be mailed home. Please check the district calendar or website for distribution dates. Parents can check grades anytime using Power School's Parent Portal.
Students are graded on a numeric grading scale. These percentages are as follows:
90 – 100% = A
80 – 89% = B
70 – 79% = C
60 – 69% = D
0 – 59% = F
Final examinations will be scheduled and are required for the core subjects of English, Science, Social Studies, and Mathematics. The grade weight for each nine-week grading period for core subjects will be 22% of one’s grade. The final exam’s value is 12%.
Each nine-week grading period 22% x 4 = 88%
Final examination grade 12% x 1 = 12%
The best way to avoid failure is to always work to your ability at all times and contact your teacher immediately for special help when you feel you are having difficulty. Teachers reserve the right to give a failing grade for any paper submitted after a given deadline without an acceptable reason.
Incomplete grades may change the final average to “failing.” Regardless of a student’s average, any course may be failed by not meeting special course requirements. Our entire grading system is based on the premise that one is held accountable for completing all requirements. Teachers reserve the right to give a failing grade for any assignment submitted after a given deadline without an acceptable reason.
An Honor Roll will be published every grading period including the names of all students who have an 85% or higher grade average. All courses will be included in calculating grade averages in proportion to the particular amount of credit given each course. Students achieving three consecutive certificates in Distinguished Honors will receive a certificate of distinction at the awards program in May.
The Honor Roll will be as follows:
95 – 100%+ = Distinguished Honors
90 – 94.99% = High Honors
85 – 89.99% = Honors
