Parents & Staff,
We became aware of some point-value discrepancies on the existing scale and acted immediately to correct them. The attached scale which will be in effect retroactively through the first grading period and from this point forward will not affect any students or their averages negatively; in fact, in three locations on the scale our students' grade point averages will appropriately rise.
This scale reflects our desire to help our students, to maintain academic integrity, and to create lasting consistency as a part of our grading practices.
The weighted courses have a separate scale altogether and have not
changed; we will be posting all of this information to the website very
soon as well.
PLEASE NOTE: We can not distribute "hard copies" of first-quarter grade cards until we go into each teacher's grades on-line and adjust with the corrections in place, but we will put those hard copies in the students' hands just as soon as we possibly can. This is a tedious, time-consuming process, but well worth our effort. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding. Feel free to call either of us with your questions and concerns.
GRADE SCALE AND CONVERSION
Progressbook has gone through a complete system overhaul for this year. Because of that, all parent and student accounts need re-created. You will be given a new account access code soon which will enable you to register for your account. The teachers are aware that you are not able to access Progressbook right now and will make adjustments accordingly. We will be mailing the information out to you today. If you do not receive it by Friday, please call the school.
Thank you for your patience.
