Grading Policy Categories
The school's grading policy centers on two main areas: formative assessment and summative assessment.
Formative Assessment • 60% of Grade
This type of assessment includes do nows, exit tickets, in-class assignments, homework, and other items used to monitor progress of daily learning targets.
Summative Assessment • 40% of Grade
This type of assessment includes tests, quizzes, projects, and other items that measure the culmination of a unit or other set of work.
Passing grades are from 65 to 100.
Failing quality work is graded 55 to 64. This type of grade is where work was submitted, but does not meet passing quality.
Assignments not turned in are graded 50.
Report Card & Transcript Grades
Report card and transcript grades depend on the type of course.
Passing grades are 65, 70, 75, 80, or 85 through 100.
Failing due to poor quality of work is entered as a 55.
Failing due to turning in little to no assignments is entered as 50.
Failing due to not showing to class is entered as 45 or NS.
Academic Enrichment, Regents Prep, Community Service, College Guidance, and other non-credit-bearing courses
These courses are all graded Pass (P) Fail (F) only.
Advanced Placement and college credit courses are weighted 1.1.
Under this model, grades are averaged by a factor of 1.1. If you earned a 90 on a course, it is averaged as 90 * 1.1 = 99. These courses are denoted by two stars on transcripts.
