Students receive feedback on weekly assignments in the form of narrative comments.
Staff will input grades at least weekly in the gradebook as work is completed. This will be available in parent/student connect for parents and students to view.
For each class, if a student participates in the learning, he/she will receive credit. The following will apply:
Students who do the following will earn the grade of A recorded:
Engage in at least 75% of the remote lessons and hangouts.
Submit and earn a passing grade on at least 75% of the assignments.
Students who do the following will earn the grade of G which awards credit:
Engage in 60-74% of the remote lessons and hangouts.
Submit and earn a passing grade on at least 60-74% of the assignments.
Students who do the following will earn the grade of N which is no credit given:
Engage in less than 60% of the remote lessons and hangouts.
Submit and earn a passing grade on less than 60% of the assignments.
If a student chooses not to participate and cannot be reached despite numerous attempts, the student receives N for no credit. The teacher must submit the credit/no credit form by May 15th for seniors and May 28th for 9th-11th grade students. The principal must approve.
If a student is unable to participate due to family hardship, the student will be excused from work and will receive credit. This evidence will be documented in the building log.
