School Grading Practices
Grading Practice Development
The expectation is for teachers working within their school communities to determine how best to achieve consistency within a school either by grade level, department or specialized course. As such, school staffs have come to a common agreement about specific grading practices. The grading practices were teacher developed, reviewed by the Instructional Leadership Teams and School Planning Councils for each building, and then approved by the Department of School Leadership.
