Grading Policy, Homework

Math and Reading-


Major Grades will been entered as major grades and valued at 30% of the final grade. Students will receive the actual grade earned and no retest will be offered since these grades reflect the culmination of a skill or topic being taught.


Daily Grades will be entered as daily grades and will be valued at 70% of the final grade. Students will be offered a minimum of 2 reteach/retest grades since daily grades are used to assess progress towards a learning goal.


Language, Science, and Social Studies-


Daily Grades will be entered as daily grades and will be valued at 100% of the final grade. Students will be offered a minimum of 2 reteach/retest grades . No grades will be assigned as Major Grades.


Rubric-

Grades that are graded with a rubric are not eligible for retesting in any subject area.


Additional grading accommodations must be based upon individual student TELPAS, RTI, 504, or SPED. plans (IEP)


Students with individual plans either based on their academics, behavior, or teacher decided needs will be followed as planned. Documentation will be included on the grades sent home and in the student’s teacher file at the teachers discretion.


At the end of the nine weeks (beginning the 2nd nine week of 2017-20180) the teacher will review the final grades for each student in each subject. If a student’s nine weeks grade falls below a 50 the teacher will override the grade and enter a 50. This reflects to the parent that mastery is not being achieved while allowing the student the possibility of bringing up the average for the final end of year grade.
