Grading Policy

Grading is a symbolic manner of communicating student achievement, performance, and progress. Criteria to be considered in assigning grades shall include but not be limited to the following: achievement, homework, attendance, effort, ability, test scores, and participation.

School Responsibility

1. Teacher will assign grades based on objective and subjective evaluation of all criteria used to determine grades (see paragraphs above).

2. Grades are affected by excessive absences because in-class instruction/discussion cannot be made up. Efforts will be made to provide the student with the opportunity to make up missed work.

3. Classwork will be provided for absent students in grades 1-5 if a request is made before noon on any day that a child is absent. The work will be available after 3:30 p.m. in the office.

4. Teachers will provide opportunities for conferences with parents to discuss the progress of students.

5. Upon the request of a student or parent, the teacher will review the criteria and evaluation materials used in determining a grade.

6. Teachers will provide make-up assignments to students on an extended absence of 3 or more days. Work is to be completed as contracted with the teacher.

2. Grades 4-5: When a student is in danger of failing a subject, the parents shall be notified at least 3 weeks before the end of the report period.

 Student Responsibility

1. Students are responsible for completing all school assignments, including homework, in such a manner that the work will receive the proper credit.

2. Work missed during absences should be made up. Students are responsible for asking for missed assignments.

 Parent Responsibility

1. Parents will monitor their children's progress in school, oversee homework, reduce absences to a minimum, eliminate tardies, and confer with teachers as necessary.

2. All school communications, including progress reports, appointment requests, report cards, and teacher messages will be signed and returned.

3. Parents will notify the school 3 days before planned absences of a week or more so that assignments may be made for that period.
