    Grade Reporting

    School Board Policy 5520: The formal issuance of grades through symbols on a regular basis by the Board in order to promote a process of continuous evaluation of student performance, to inform the student, his/her parents, and counselor of the student's progress and to provide a basis for bringing about improvement in student performance, where such change seems necessary.

     

    The Grading Scale below is to be reflected on all report cards for all instructional programs:

    A = 90 — 100 indicates excellent achievement

    B = 80 —  90 indicates good achievement

    C = 70 —  80 indicates satisfactory achievement 

    D = 60 —  70 indicates minimal achievement

    F = Less than 60 indicates insufficient achievement to earn credit toward graduation
