Grading Policy

Grades for the semester are cumulative. This means that work from the first half of the semester will still impact your grade at the end of the semester. In other words, there is only one marking period per semester this school year. You and your parent/guardian will receive five progress reports in addition to a final semester grade (official final transcript grade) in a semester to demonstrate your progress. Teachers will also meet with you before each progress report to discuss your progress.
