R 6450 Assignment of Grades

Through the District's methods of student evaluation and parent/guardian-student-teacher communications, the District strives to meet the following objectives:

  1. Parents/guardians are to be informed regularly, at least four (4) times a year, as to the progress their children are making in school.

  2. Parents/guardians will be alerted and conferred with as soon as possible when a student's performance or attitude becomes unsatisfactory or shows marked or sudden deterioration.

  3. When a student is making low marks, the parents/guardians of the student should be notified in writing by a form approved by the administration at approximately the midpoint of each quarter.

  4. Insofar as is possible, distinctions will be made between a student's attitude and academic performance.

  5. At comparable levels, the District will strive for consistency in grading and reporting, except when inappropriate for certain classes or students.

  6. When grades are given, the school staff will take particular care to explain the meaning of the marks and symbols to students and parents/guardians.

The issuance of grades on a regular basis serves to promote a process of continuous evaluation of student performance in the District.

Grading shall not be influenced by pressure from parents/guardians. In addition, grades are not to be used as a disciplinary measure.
