4th QUARTER GRADING INFORMATION FOR MILTON-UNION ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS
During the period of school closure due to COVID-19, teaching and learning has not been typical. We believe traditional grading of remote learning activities should not adversely affect students. Teacher feedback for learning is always the most important aspect of any grading practice to communicate student progress toward standards mastery and learning.
We want to do our part to help students maintain their paths toward the next grade level. As much as possible, remote learning events and activities were designed to support educational continuity and promote students’ connectedness with teachers. Grading practices should not only measure standards-based progress but also reward and reflect the commitment of students and families to stay engaged with teachers. During this period of remote learning, teacher feedback will be based on student engagement as well as mastery of grade level, priority standards.
Kindergarten through Grade Two: Students will receive narrative comments from teachers regarding progress made during remote learning. Narrative comments will replace typical grades/marks seen for the first three marking periods. Teachers will note active participation in completing assignments with an addition sign (+). For specials teachers, this will be blank if the student did not participate in assignments.
Grade Three through Grade Five: The following scale will be used to report standards-based progress.
E - Exceeds Expectations
M - Met Expectations
P - Partially Met Expectations
N - Needs Improvement
** Specials teachers will use the following scale for Grades Three through Five. **
O - Regularly engaged in assignments
S - Engaged in assignments inconsistently
NG - Not graded based on no involvement with assignments
We hope you and your loved ones are well, and if you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s teacher.
Have a wonderful and healthy summer!
