Beginning immediately, we will implement a uniform grading procedure for our virtual school. Each student will have a baseline grade for each class they are taking:
- For most high school students, this will be their 3rd nine weeks average.
- For K-8 students, as well as high school students in year-long courses, the baseline will be their cumulative average as of the 3rd 9 Weeks.
Please note that if a student has a failing baseline grade, it is imperative for that student to take advantage of these opportunities, to participate fully in virtual school, and to complete all assignments or risk being retained.
Classroom content is being provided by teachers to continue the educational process for all of our students and to prepare them for classes they will take in the future. Work completed by students will only be recorded if it is above their baseline grade. Completed work during virtual school will only help a student’s grade. Any work below the baseline score will not be recorded; however, the students can work with the teacher to improve that grade if they wish. Any work not attempted will be recorded in the grade book as NGR (No Grade Recorded). This will allow parents the opportunity to see which assignments their student has not completed. Please use STI to access your student’s grades. If you don’t remember your STI password please call your child’s school between the hours 9:00 am – 1:00 pm to have your password reset. Please contact your teachers or the school if you do not have internet access, and we will provide you with a class packet in order for assignments to be completed. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call your school office on weekdays between 9:00 am – 1:00 pm.
Once again, our goal is to continue learning for all our students during this time of uncertainty and to provide them outstanding learning opportunities to further their education. Thank you for your continued support of the New Albany School District and Go Dawgs!
