Grading Expectations

Why do we have grading expectations?

The principal purpose of the grading and reporting of student progress is to engage educators, students, and parents in the process of increasing student achievement. 

Parents shall be provided any relevant information concerning their child that will enhance their understanding of the child’s ability, effort, success, or progress in the school program.
