• The grading system used in previous years has been altered quite a bit this year.  It is really important to realize that this only affects the papers we give back to students.  It does not affect how report grades are handled.  On the report cards, the grades are still:

     

    100% to 90%  A           89% to 80%   B          79% to 70%      C            69% to 60%     D         59% and below    F

     

    Most assignments will have a percentage on them and for report cards will follow the scale above.  In addition to the percentage, most assignments will have a letter grade based on the growth mindset system.  This letter system is based on an A to T system.  The reason behind this is to better show growth on the part of students.  Often a student will get discouraged on a test if they see another "F" even if they for example move up from a 20% to a 55%.  This system better helps a student recognize the growth they have achieved.
