GRADING SYSTEMS AND STUDENT PROGRESS REPORTS TO PARENTS
It is the policy of the Board of Education that the process for assessing and reporting student performance shall emphasize progress toward and achievement of the district’s curriculum content standards, benchmarks, and essential learning results.

Adjustments to the grading system for Special Education students or English Language Learner students shall be consistent with legal requirements in place at the time.
The grading system and reporting procedure shall take into consideration demands on teacher and parent time and must be in a form that is meaningful to students and parents. Reporting shall be consistent district-wide at comparable grade levels. Accurate records of pupil achievement based on an appropriate body of evidence shall be kept by each teacher and used to determine achievement during each marking period.
