I am writing to offer you a summary of the district’s End of Year Secondary Grading & Report Cards. I hope you find this document helpful but encourage you to reach out to your child’s Guidance Counselor, principal, assistant principal, dean or academic head if you (or your child) have any questions.
As a reminder, below is a link to our “Q4 Guiding Tenets and Grading Outline for Families” that was previously shared and provides specific information on S-G’s framework for grading students in Quarter 4.
All families will receive a Final Report Card in the mail during the week of June 29th, 2020.
|Highlights of the End of Year Secondary Report Card:
1. A grade of “P” for passing:
a. A grade of P signifies that the student has successfully demonstrated evidence of learning for the year in that respective course.
b. A grade of P applies course credit to the student’s permanent transcript.
c. A grade of P does not carry any numeric value and is NOT calculated into a student’s Cumulative Average.
2. A grade of “INC” for incomplete:
a. A grade of INC signifies that the student has not successfully demonstrated evidence of learning for the year in that respective course.
b. If a student receives an INC for a class and there is a Virtual Summer School option to recover that class the student’s family has already been contacted by either the student’s Guidance Counselor or building administrator. If you have more questions about a student’s assigned grade of INC please contact your child’s Guidance Counselor, principal, assistant principal, dean or academic head.
c. A grade of INC does not carry any numeric value and is NOT calculated into a student’s Cumulative Average.
3. A numeric grade (ex: 88%):
a. A student received a numeric average for their Final Average if they successfully passed Quarters 1 and 2.
b. If a student successfully passed Quarters 1, 2 and 4 this school year they received an additional 3 points added to their Final Average score (please see our “Q4 Guiding Tenets and Grading Outline for Families” linked above for details of calculating this Final Average scenario).
c. If a student is enrolled in a college level credit bearing course they may have received a numeric grade per the college’s guidelines. These UHS/college courses are not eligible for the 3 point increase to their Final Average that Scotia-Glenville instituted, at local level, for our other year long, non-college credit courses.
d. A numeric grade WILL be calculated into a student’s Cumulative Average.
