Grading in the middle school during for the second half of the 2019/2020 school year will be “Pass/Needs Improvement”

Pass: A student will receive a “Pass” for a course if they were passing prior to distance learning and have demonstrated that they have made an effort to participate in distance learning. A student who was not passing prior, but have demonstrated effort during distance learning may receive a “Pass”.

Needs Improvement: A student will receive a “N/I” for a course if they were not passing prior to distance learning and staff have been unable to connect with student(s) to document that students attempted to do work during distance learning.
