Class Placement Letter

New EPR Scoring Language

This grading scale will remain consistent for the second semester of the 2015-2016 school year.

Grading Scale Supporting Language:

  • A score of “Exceeds” indicates a high level of achievement; it communicates that a student has a strong understanding of the content/concepts/skills taught during the semester and can demonstrate understanding independently and with very few errors.

  • A score of “Meets” indicates that a student demonstrates understanding of content/concepts/skills most of the time and with limited support. Student makes few major errors or omissions when demonstrating concepts/skills.

  • A score of “Approaching” indicates that a student requires moderate support to demonstrate understanding of concepts/skills. Demonstrated understanding of concepts/skills is inconsistent or infrequent indicating a partial understanding of the content/concepts/skills. Errors or omissions in work are more frequent.

A score of “Does Not Meet” indicates that a student seldom demonstrates understanding of concepts and skills taught during the semester. Student requires considerable support to demonstrate learning of concepts and skills and makes frequent major errors when demonstrating understanding.


Paper Problems !!

We are extremely low on paper (60 Reams).

  • Please take care in reserving paper for copying things essential to student learning.
  • Parents should be asked to download/copy Bridges homework at home.
  • Use your 1-1 devices in place of paper copies when possible.
  • Use your reusable plastic sleeves for Bridges games or other items.
  • If we were to ration paper, each teacher would be given 2 reams (1000 pages) for the remainder of the year. While we are not actually doing this, please keep it in mind when determining what you need to copy.
Thank you for helping preserve our paper!

End Of Year CITE

March 18 - All evidence needs to be uploaded into CITE

  • IF you have a GVC Map for the year completed with aligned units (live linked), please upload for evidence of Standard 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4.
    • If you've already received ratings for this, you're done with this step.
    • If you won't have a completed map for this year, you do not need to upload it.
  • Please select ONE unit plan that you have collaborated on that is a great reflection of Standards 1 and 2. Your team is welcome to choose the same plan or you may upload an individual favorite. Please make sure to "share" the plan with us (Teresa, Molly) and any coordinating links as well that are embedded in your plan.
