Remote Learning Grading Policy for Pre-K-5th

What You Need to Know

The grading policy outlined below is in effect for the rest of the 2019-20 school year. Teachers will base final grades on a review of students' progress overall, before and after we started remote learning. Attendance will not be a factor in students’ grades. No student will receive a failing final grade.
  • Pre-K: No change because students do not receive report card or grades
  • K-5th: Students receive final grades of either "Meets Standards" (MT) or "Needs Improvement" (N)
