6:280 - Grading and Promotion

Policy 6:280

Instruction

Grading and Promotion

The Superintendent or designee shall establish a system of grading and reporting academic achievement to students and their parent(s)/guardian(s). The system shall also determine when promotion and graduation requirements are met. A student shall not be promoted based upon age or any other social reason not related to academic performance. The administration shall determine remedial assistance for a student who is not promoted.

Every teacher shall maintain an evaluation record for each student in the teacher’s classroom. A District administrator cannot change the final grade assigned by the teacher without notifying the teacher. Reasons for changing a student’s final grade include:

  • A miscalculation of test scores,
  • A technical error in assigning a particular grade or score,
  • The teacher agrees to allow the student to do extra work that may impact the grade,
  • An inappropriate grading system used to determine the grade, or
  • An inappropriate grade based on an appropriate grading system.

Should a grade change be made, the administrator making the change must sign the changed record.
