A. Third Marking Period Grades
Students will be assigned the highest grade resulting from one of the following:
- Students may keep the grade they earned for the third marking period as of March 13, 2020, when the Governor closed schools.
- Students may improve their 3rd marking period grade by making up missed work (from previously learned content) and submitting it to their classroom teacher on or before May 15, 2020. All work must be pre-approved by the teacher.
- Students may improve their 3rd marking period grade by completing replacement or alternate assignments (from previously learned content) and submitting them to their teacher on or before May 15, 2020. This choice may be used if the student missed a performance-based assignment, science lab, or other activities which cannot be replicated at home. All work must be pre-approved by the teacher.
The third marking period will end on May 15, 2020 and teachers will complete 3rd marking and final grades by the last day of school, May 29, 2020.
B. Course Credit, Completion, Credentials, and Graduation
Some students may have to complete additional tasks to fulfill their course requirements. The following students should speak with their teacher and/or school counselor regarding their specific requirements:
- Graduating Seniors - Class of 2020
- Students Enrolled in AP Courses
- Students Enrolled in CTE Courses
- Students Enrolled in Driver’s Education Courses
- Students Enrolled in Dual Enrollment Courses
- Students Enrolled in Early College
- Students Enrolled at the Governor’s School
- Students Enrolled in the STEM Academy
C. Final Grades for the 2019-20 School Year
Final grades for the 2019-20 school year will be based on the average of the first three marking period grades after meeting all requirements in sections A and B above.
Graduating seniors, NCAA-eligible athletes, scholarship recipients, and those students who have specific circumstances related to GPA, please contact your school counselor to discuss your specific needs.
D. Getting Ready for the 2020-2021 School Year
Beginning April 6, 2020, students will have access to essential learning activities, assignments, and tasks that will prepare them to transition to the next grade or course level. While these learning activities are not graded, teachers will be monitoring students’ progress/participation in the learning activities over the next few weeks. Using teachers’ feedback, members of the Family Connect Team will reach out to offer assistance to students who are not progressing or participating.
Students who are unable to work on the learning activities at this time due to medical reasons, accessibility concerns, or other related reasons will have the opportunity to work on these activities at the start of the 2020-21 school year. We anticipate the start of the new school year will look a little different and include many opportunities for students to revisit, re-engage, and catch-up on any areas needed.
It is important that all students engage in the learning activities that will get them ready for the next school year.
