Important: Grading Guidelines
WCPSS has developed grading guidelines that align with NC State Board of Education revised grading policy and provided summaries of these guidelines with key dates, timelines and checklists. For year-long courses the final grade will be based on the average of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd quarter. Students will receive a final grade of PC-19 for averages above 60 and a WC-19 for averages below 60. Students can continue to improve 3rd quarter grades to improve averages. Access to view Final grades and 4th Quarter are being temporarily disabled as the grade calculation is not accurate. Final grades will be posted by June 5th. Please contact your child’s teacher with questions. Again, we appreciate your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times. Grades 6-8 | Summary of Guidelines, Full Guidelines
Please take a quick survey on your remote learning experience
We would like for families to provide feedback on their students’ remote learning experience so far. This will be the first of two surveys this semester designed to help us improve remote learning.
Please complete the survey by May 20: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/N985N68
We continue to complete plans for closing the school year, celebrating our 8th graders and having students turn in and pick up items. This will likely take place in June so please be patient.
We know that energy and focus is beginning to eb on the homefront and we ask that you continue to encourage your kids to engage. We have four weeks left. Each day is an investment in next year!
Be safe. I miss you all!
Jimmy Sposato, Principal
