The Superintendent shall establish a system of grading and reporting academic achievement to students and their parent(s)/guardian(s) and students. The system shall also determine when promotion and graduation requirements are met.
Classification of students as freshman, sophomore, junior or senior year students will be based on years of attendance. The administration shall determine remedial assistance for a student not earning sufficient credits toward graduation in a four year time period.
Grading and Reporting
Every teacher shall maintain an evaluation record for each student in the teacher’s classroom. A District administrator cannot change the final grade assigned by the teacher without notifying the teacher. Reasons for changing a student’s final grade include:
a miscalculation of test scores;
a technical error in assigning a particular grade or score;
the teacher agrees to allow the student to do extra work that may impact the grade;
an inappropriate grading system used to determine the grade; or
an inappropriate grade based on an appropriate grading system.
Should a grade change be made, the administrator making the change must sign the changed record.
