Instruction

Grading and Promotion

The Superintendent or designee, in consultation with professional staff, shall establish a system of grading and reporting academic growth and achievement to parent(s)/guardian(s) and students. The decision to promote a student to the next grade level shall be based on successful completion of the curriculum, positive attendance, and performance on state and/or other assessments. The Superintendent or designee and professional staff will determine when promotion requirements are met. A student shall not be promoted based upon age or any other social reason not related to academic performance. The administration shall determine remedial assistance for a student who is not promoted.

Every teacher shall establish and maintain an evaluation record, i.e. grade book, for students in his/her classroom. At the end of a grading term, data from the teacher’s evaluation record is transferred to the student’s report card. A District administrator cannot change the final grade assigned by a teacher without notifying that teacher. The administrator making the change must sign the changed record.
