Grading System

The director of schools shall develop an administrative procedure to establish a system of grading and assessment for evaluating and recording student progress and to measure student performance in conjunction with board adopted content standards for grades K-8.

 

The grading/assessment system shall follow all applicable statutes and rules and regulations of the State Board of Education. The grading/assessment system shall be uniform district-wide at comparable grade levels, except that the director of schools shall have the authority to establish and operate ungraded and/or unstructured classes in grades K-3 according to state rules and regulations. The director of schools shall submit a copy of the grading, reporting and assessment systems to the board before the system is implemented.

 

These guidelines shall be communicated annually to students and parents/guardians. Conduct grades are based on behavior and shall not be deducted from scholastic grades.
