New District Grading Policy and Scale
90-100 = A
80-89 = B
70-79 = C
69 and below = Incomplete
Anything below a 70 will be considered Incomplete. A student scoring an Incomplete in any content area will experience remediation either during or after school until the grade is at 70 or above. If the grade remains Incomplete at the end of the school year, it will become a D or F. Our goal is mastery of content so D's and F's will not be a part of our vocabulary unless we are experiencing an exceptional circumstance.
Remediation may occur during the core content class, during the extension block, or as a part of before or after school ESS.
