Each nine weeks a report card for each class will be issued to
each student. This will be based on the work completed that period.
At the end of each semester, (2 nine-week periods) exams are given and
averaged with the nine weeks grades. The same will be done the second
semester. The two half-year grades will be added and divided by two
for the final grade. Report cards must be signed by a parent/guardian
and returned to the student's homeroom teacher.
All students receive a progress report in every class
approximately two days after the mid-point of the grading period.
This report will give students and their parents an idea whether or not
the child is having difficulty in a class while there is still time to
improve the situation. Progress reports will also indicate why the
student is experiencing trouble and how the teacher can be contacted.
All progress reports are to be taken home by the student, signed by a
parent, and returned to the teachers.
Failure to return progress reports or report cards within three days will result in an after-school detention.
