JH/HS students can receive a “pass” or “incomplete” which will translate to a 4th quarter letter grade. Semester 2 grade is an average of quarter 3 and quarter 4.
Students who receive a “pass” will keep the same grade they had for 3rd quarter as their quarter 4 grade. Students may want to improve their grades from the 3rd quarter. They may work with their teachers to determine what needs to be completed in order to improve the grade. Students are responsible for communicating with their teachers by April 30th if they wish to improve their grade. If improvement was demonstrated, the student would not receive a “pass” but an actual improved grade for the 4th quarter. Students who receive an “incomplete” will have till May 18th to move their 4th quarter grade to a “pass” or they will receive a “fail” for the 4th quarter grade, which will result in their 3rd quarter grade dropping one letter grade and becoming their final grade for 4th quarter.
All JH/HS assignments are due on May 18th.
We will continue to monitor online access and engagement. Those students who are regularly participating and engaged will be considered in good standing and likely be on a course for “passing” their classes. We will continue to contact those who are not engaging and work with the student and family to address obstacles to engagement.
Please be watching for an announcement for students to turn in all school laptops, textbooks, etc during the week of May 18th.
