4th Quarter Grading


All grading windows are open. Grades have to be in by 4:00 on Tues, May 24th.


Along with 4th Quarter Grading also comes a posting of course "Pass" or "Fail." Please have this complete by Tuesday, May 24th.


Pass or Fail Guidelines are:

• K-3: an F is only given to students that are being retained due to academic reasons, posted in ELA and/or Math only. Science and Social Studies would receive a P. If a student is being retained due to behavior/developmental concerns and actually passed the courses, they should receive a P. This would also be the case for students being retained by parent request. Only Q4 should be considered for K-3.


• 4-5th: an F is posted to each content area (ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies) regardless of promotion/retention. This is determined by an average of Q1-Q4 for each subject. A “P” is for 70 and above, a “F” for below 70 based on all four quarters.

Textbook Information **NEW**

Jen Emmert is going to check in textbooks during your planning time on Tuesday, May 24th!! Danielle had mentioned she would do this after school, but we have changed that plan! If you could have all textbooks laid out on a table or the floor that would make the process go much quicker and smoother. Let Jen know if you have questions or won't be ready by that time.
