How Grades are Calculated
Reflects modifications which were put into effect on September 9, 2020.
In SBGR, grades measure a student’s progress against known and established milestones — not against how well their classmates are doing. And grades mean the same thing from class to class and school to school. That has not changed.
But, the transition to standards-based education and grading in 2011 came with a promise — that the district would listen to input from staff and parents and use it to fine-tune the system.
Following refinement of the initial implementation of SBE, the district has reworked the process for calculating grades based on parent, staff, student and administrator input.
