Understanding Tacoma Online & Edgenuity Grading
Teachers determine final grades, not software
While we've worked to make Edgenuity show meaningful progress grades, ultimately teachers will assess all work and determine final grades. You can contact individual teachers for specific information or questions related to final grading.
Target Completion and Pacing
Pacing is an important concept in Edgenuity courses. It lets families, students, and teachers know if a student is on track to complete 100% of the class. This year, our teachers customized courses and built them with the expectation that students will complete 100% of each course. On your student dashboard or family progress report, there are pacing "bars" that indicate if you're on pace on not, BLUE means on pace. Strive to stay on pace in all of your courses.
Edgenuity weekly progress reports
We set student accounts to email families a weekly progress report for your student. If you're not receiving these progress reports, please email us and let us know so we can update your contact information.

A Message from our School Nurse
Just a reminder; By law, all students enrolled in P/K thru 12 must be complete in immunizations. This has nothing to do with TOL or studying from home; It’s the law, period. If Immunizing your child is against your personal or religious beliefs, please reach out to me for an exemption form. firstname.lastname@example.org
I have been updating Medical Alerts and many of you have heard from me regarding this. If your child has a medical condition, updating the information in your child’s profile will make any transition back to in-person learning, that much easier. We do not want anything to be missed.
