Gradebook Changes in Teams

2016-2017 School Year

Gradebook Categories for the 2016-2017 school year have been changed to align with the districts uniform grading guidelines. We believe that this change will help us have a unified communication to our parents and students when discussing grades. We understand that this may be different from what you have seen in the past and we are here to help. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thanks in advance for your understanding.

CATEGORIES

There are only 3 categories that are available to weigh student assignments; Homework, Major, and Non-Major. Please refer to the grading guidelines for the specific weights for the categories. A quick view of Category Weights can be viewed below by grade.
