High School Athletic Eligibilty
Athletic and Club eligibility will continue to apply as it has in the past. Students will still need to earn a passing grade in at least 5 of their courses to be eligible. The Grading Conversion Calculation (below) will be used to identify students who are failing a course where they should be able to show a level 2 proficiency for skills. Any student who is not making adequate progress in at least five classes will be ineligible. Tutorial processes will still apply to ineligible students.
Middle School Athletic Eligibilty
For students to be eligible to participate in extracurricular activities, they are expected to make adequate progress in their academic outcomes and Habits of Work. Earning a 1 on a standard or Habit of Work for which progess beyond a 1 is expected is considered inadequate progress for eligibility. A student who has two or more courses in which they are not making adequate progress will be deemed ineligible.
High School Grade Letter Calculation
Grades will not be calculated differently by each teacher through accumulating percentage points for homework, tests, and classwork. Instead, grades will be calculated by all teachers using the following common formula:
A: Met or exceeded all standards. Student earns 4s & 3s on all standards.
B: Met most priority standards. Student earns half or more 4s & 3s on all standards and no 1s on any standards.
C: Met some priority standards and made progress on all standards. Student earns less than half 4s & 3s on all standards and no 1s on any standards.
D: Made progress on all standards. Student earns 2s on all standards.
I or F: Student earns 1 on any standards. I = In Progress, insufficient evidence of learning or of reaching basic standards. With additional time, student may successfully complete the course. F = Not enough evidence of learning. Student needs to repeat the course.
