Grades with Grace
The New Philadelphia Schools are proud of the continued learning during this time. Our students are attending and doing assignments every day. While it hasn’t been ideal, we have maintained our focus on the whole child, including academics, interests, and mindset.
Knowing our students and families have been living in a national crisis we are committed to making sure remote learning does not have an adverse impact on a student’s final grade. Here are the district’s plans for issuing the end of the year grade.
4th Quarter Grades and Semester Grades (Grades 3-12)
Our grading procedure will remain unchanged for the 4th quarter. Students will receive letter grades as they normally would if learning was taking place inside our school buildings.
If a student has a lower 4th quarter grade than what they earned for the first three-quarter average, the student will receive the higher three-quarter average as their 4th quarter grade on their report card.
If a student has a higher 4th quarter grade than what they earned for the first three-quarter average, the student will receive the higher 4th quarter grade on their report card.
There will be no final exams administered.
Semester and overall course grades will be calculated as in the past.
4th Quarter Marks (Grades K-2)
For the 4th Quarter, the students will receive the same standards-based scoring as previously.
If a student has a lower 4th quarter mark than what they earned over the first three-quarters, the student will receive the higher three-quarter mark as their 4th mark on their report card.
If a student has a higher 4th quarter mark than what they earned for the first three-quarters, the student will receive that grade as their 4th quarter grade on their report card.
K-12 Students with an IEP
IEP Progress Reports will include:
Details about your students’ IEP goals and how objectives have continued to be monitored for progress during remote learning.
Details about the progress your students made during the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
Students should check their school Email, Canvas, & Google Classroom accounts for more information.
No Internet Access?
That is fine! Students without internet access can pick up a packet of lessons and assignments at the Front Administration Building from Tuesday through Friday from 8:00am - 4:00pm. WMS/NPHS parents, please know your child's schedule (e.g. Algebra I, English 9, Art I).
