Grading Guidelines

  • In grades 5-12, teachers will take a minimum of 10 grades, which includes three major grades (major tests, projects, and papers) and seven daily grades for each grading period.
  • Teachers will update grades weekly in Skyward.
  • Teachers may give zeros with documentation that all effort has been exhausted to obtain work from a student.
  • Grades on major assignments that are not submitted during the class period in which they are due are reduced by up to ten points per day for three school days.
  • Grading of homework assignments is at the teacher’s discretion. However, late homework assignments that are graded will receive a maximum grade of 70. 
  • Students who have been absent from school for any reason are allowed to make up work missed. Teachers will work with students to establish a reasonable time within which to complete missed work. For example, if a student is absent two days then the student will have two days to make up the missed work. 
  • Students enrolled in Pre-Advanced Placement (Pre AP) and Advanced Placement (AP) courses will be allowed to retake only one test per six weeks.
  • Students may retake a test for which they receive a failing grade.  The highest grade a student can earn on any subsequent attempt will be a 70%.
  • When a student who is served through special education and/or 504 has failed two or more consecutive six weeks in a subject, the Admission, Review, and Dismissal (ARD) Committee or the 504 Committee will review the student’s plan and make any needed changes to the IEP or plan.
The Pine Tree family champions the relentless pursuit of excellence through a compassionate and safe learning environment empowering all students to develop their unique passions and to make a positive impact in a global society.
