    4th  Grade Grading Policy for Norterra Canyon

     

    In DVUSD we use the electronic grade book of Power Schools to share with students and parents the grades that will be reflected on your student’s report card.  Gradebooks are updated on a weekly basis and every effort is made to record a minimum of one grade per week for each content area.  Grades are not recorded for introductory skills, but are to be an evaluation of academic standards and content mastery.  When assignments or scores are missing, a zero (M) is entered until work is turned in.  This allows students and parents to identify work that needs to be completed prior to the final assessment for the unit. No single assessment or project can be more than 25% of the total grade.  On an assessment for students scoring below 80%, or as requested by students, they may fill out a contract with the teacher that will allow the student to retake the assessment and replace the original grade with no penalty.
