Middle School grades for Spring 2020 will be calculated as follows:

Teachers will calculate each student’s final grade after evaluating which option is higher.
  • Option A Use the grade as of March 13, 2020 as the semester final grade.
  • Option B Use the grade as of March 13, 2020 AND the Distance Learning assignments to calculate the semester final grade.

Please note: The grades that went home in the 3rd Quarter Progress Report on Thursday, March 12 , were processed on Monday, March 9 , and therefore did not include grades earned March 9 - March 12 . All grades earned PRIOR to school closure will be included in the calculation of the March 13 grade when considering Option A or B. This grade may not be the same as what is listed as the 9-week average for Term 2-1.

*Distance Learning assignments can only be used to improve a student’s final average in a course.
