STANDARDS-BASED GRADING

The elementary school has transitioned to standards-based grading this year. Teachers will grade your child based on their mastery level of each standard. Students may not have grades entered in Infinite Campus every week. Teachers will enter scores after mastery of the standard has been assessed.
