ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENTAcademic_achievement

Progress Reports and Report Card information and details:
Academic acheivement is measured by participation and performance on assigments, homework, and other class activities. Students earn 5 credits for each class they pass with an A, B, C, or D. Students that warrant a failing grade do not earn credit for the class. These classes may be repeated to earn a passing grade, however, please consult with your counselor first. The following are grade options:
A = Excellent  (5 credits)
B = Above Average  (5 credits)
C = Average  (5 credits)
D = Below Average  (5 credits)
F = Failure  (0 credits)
Along with a letter grade for acheivement each teacher will issue a citizenship grade. Teachers will develop a classroom managment plan for the class that will outline expected student conduct and citizenship. The citizenship grade identifies student behavior in class as detailed below. In general, students are expected to behave in a mature and responsible manner in class. Absences and tardies are included in this grade, as well as the manner in which students address adults in the classroom. State standards require instructions to include the development of student behavior.  The following choices are citizenship grade options:
              O=Outstanding     S= Satisfactory   U= Unsatisfactory
If a student earns two "U" in Citizenship, disciplanary interventions will result in the students forfeit of co-curricular activities.
