Student/Parent Portal Change
Wednesday, November 15, 2017 10:40 AM

Please be aware of a change to the student/parent portal for the rest of the year. In the first quarter, all assessments were lumped together in one category that counted for 80% of the grade. In upcoming quarters, assessments will be broken down by their individual learning targets, with each learning target representing a percentage of the grade (totaling 80%). This is similar to what we have had in past years, but we were unable to do so first quarter this year because of a technicality in the gradebook. We are excited about this change because it allows students, families, and teachers to better analyze student progress in specific learning targets.

The other 20% of the grade will continue to be work habits/homework.

We will be going over this change with students during advisory so they know how to interpret the new look of the portal. We ask that you also check the portal once a week to see how your child is progressing.

Teachers will be informing students at the specific category breakdowns in their respective classes. These breakdowns will also be available on teachers' web pages.
