6TH - 8TH Grades:
Students who receive services within the inclusion class will receive grades based on the following teachers' grading policy:
Grades can be supplemented with additional assignments provided by me in collaboration with the general education teacher.
K-3rd Grades Standards Based Grading
1- Beginning Learner} This means the student's work exemplified more than 2 grade levels below the expectation and/or it was completed with assistance beyond the student's IEP accommodations
2- Emerging Learner} This means the student's work exemplified below grade level work with the student's IEP accommodations (this could also mean the student did not quite work independently due to goals that should be focused on according to the IEP)
3- Proficient Learner} This means the student's work exemplified grade level responses with the student's IEP accommodations
4- Distinguished Learner} This means the student's work exemplified grade level responses without the use of the IEP accommodations even though the accommodations were provided
My grading policy correlates with the policy established by the Richmond County Special Education Department. Grades will be based on modifications of standards to reflect progress on IEP goals and objectives. IEP progress reports will be distributed every nine weeks according to the start date of the student's IEP. Regular report cards and progress reports will be distributed according to the policy established by Richmond County School System.
All grades are given based on the student's capability in addition to the standards.
