Grading and Attendance Policy

Grading and Attendance Policy

 

           I look forward to working with your child this year. We will have many great opportunities for exploring curriculum, working on community service projects, creating portfolios, and working on your student’s individual needs in the classroom. I would like to take a moment and share the classroom grading and attendance policy.

            If your child is absent I suggest contacting me during the day to gather missed class work and picking it up in the office before 4:00 pm. Your child will be required to make up any class work that is missed that day. They will have ample time to finish the assignments. The time frame will be determined based on the amount of days missed for a give illness. If your child misses a test they will be required to make it up, otherwise it will be considered a zero.

 

 As for my grading policy:

                                                                                                                              97% - 100% = A+                77% - 79% = C+

                                                                                                                               93% -  96% = A                   73% - 76% = C

                                                                                                                              90% -  92% = A-                  70% - 72% = C-

                                                                                                                              87% -  89% = B+                 67% - 69% = D+

                                                                                                                              86% -  83% = B                    63% - 66% = D

                                                                                                                              80% -  82% = B-                  60% - 62% = D-

                                                                                                                                                      59% or Below = F
