Kindergarten, First, and Second use a standards based grading policy.
The report card grading key uses numbers 1-4 to report progress toward mastery for a grade-level
standard listed on the report card. Since a student may perform differently based on the standard being evaluated,
it is expected that a student’s report card may have some standards marked as 2 (Approaching Standard) and others
marked as 3 (Meeting Standard) or 2 (Below Standard).
The 4-point, standards-based scale cannot be equated to a letter grading scale or a mathematical percentage of
mastery. For example a 2 does not indicate mastery of 50% of the skills or content for the reporting period.
Beginning the 3rd grade year students will receive letter grades:
U Below 69
Grades will be determined based on classwork, tests/quiz/exit ticket, and project based learning. Grades should always reflect the work ethic of the student.
