Assignment of Grades
Student performance is assessed on a continual basis throughout the school year. This evaluation assesses student growth in expression of ideas, communication, achievement of educational goals, and personal growth, and development. Grades will be assigned based upon student ability, achievement, effort, and cooperation.
A disabled student’s IEP team or Section 504 team may determine that his/her academic requirements, including but not limited to the requirements for achieving a specific letter or numerical grade, may be modified or altered. Under these circumstances, the IEP team or Section 504 team shall determine whether the student shall be included in the computation of class rank. Students who are not included in the class rank shall still receive a cumulative grade point average (G.P.A.) and shall be eligible for the honor roll.
If a non-disabled student is receiving homebound instruction, the principal, counselor and/or classroom teacher(s) for such course(s), in conjunction with the homebound teacher, shall determined whether the student shall be included in the computation of class rank, depending on the degree of modification or alteration to the curriculum the homebound student requires. Homebound students who are not included in the class ranking shall still receive a cumulative G.P.A. and shall be eligible for the honor roll.
