A note on grades

Students who score 60-80 on assignments are approaching grade level expectations. These students will be able to make corrections on the assignment, and the grade on the corrections will replace the original grade.

Students who score below a 60 will be retaught the skill to improve their understanding of the concept. After a reteach, students will have an additional opportunity to demonstrate their new understanding. This grade will also replace the original grade.
