In order to promote uniformity and fairness in the academic letter grading formula for the St. Regis Public Schools, and to support our concern for Excellence in Education, the Board of Trustees, School District 1, has adopted a 4.00 grading schedule with the following percentile formula for grading standards to be applied in grade levels 4-12.
69 Percent and below
- This grading schedule specifically prohibits recording or awarding letter grades of A+ C- in any subjects in grades 4-12.
- Pass or No Pass will be assigned for Teacher Assistance.
Students will be assigned an Incomplete (I) if a student has not completed the coursework, unless administration approves an extended period of time for extenuating circumstances. Extenuating circumstances may include, but is not limited to medical conditions, death or severe illness of a family member, or military transfers or leave periods. The grade of incomplete will stand until the student has demonstrated mastery of the course.
PARTICIPATIONStudent participation is required in all classes. Grades are attached to their level of participation. If a student is gone for the following reasons, they will be exempt from participation points.1. Medical/Doctor2. Death of an immediate family member3. School event4. Subpoena from court5. Religious HolidayIf a student is marked excused and missed the daily participation pts, they will be able to make up those points by completing a 1 pg paper. The student is expected to meet with the teacher to receive the writing prompt. If they fail to meet with the teacher, the student will receive 0 participation pts. For every day a student misses school and the participation pts, they will have one day to hand in the paper. See example below:1. 1 day of absence=1 day to make it up. If John is gone 5 days, he will have 5 days to make it up. If he doesn't get it in on day 5, he will get a 0. John will be expected to hand in 5 papers. If John hands in 3 of the 5 papers, he will receive participation points for those 3 days.
