Grading Guidelines

Please note these guidelines only apply to accelerated math (4C Math) students.

Our classroom uses the following grading scale:

  • A: 90-100
  • B: 80-89
  • C: 70-79
  • D: 65-69
  • DNM (Does Not Meet): 0-64

Please note that there is no realtime grade book available in Google Classroom, ParentVue or StudentVue. While these sites may have grades listed, there may be assignments and class participation scores not reflected in here and the grades posted here are subject to revision.


In our learning community, everything is a chance to learn more!

Because of this, students are always welcome to make corrections to any graded classroom assignment with a D or below. Students do not need to ask permission to submit corrections.

To submit corrections, please follow these guidelines:

  • Submit the original assignment.
  • Attache to a separate sheet of paper for corrections.
  • Clearly indicate which problem or question is being corrected.
  • Provide a corrected answer along with any appropriate work.
  • Write a brief explanation of why the answer is correct and how the student determined this answer is correct. Explanations should be written at a fourth-grade level. Answers such as “I recalculated the problem” or “I fixed the error” are not accepted. For an explanation to be valid, students must demonstrate they have learned what their error is and how to prevent it next time.

Corrections that do not include a quality written explanation will not be accepted.

The amount of points earned back will be reflected based on the effort made on the corrections.

Please note that, in general, corrections should be handed in within five school days of the assignment being returned except near the end of the marking period when the deadline may be shortened or eliminated. Announcements will be made in class if this is the case with a certain assignment.

Grading errors

While every effort is made to accurately grade each assignment, there is always the possibility an error.

  • Students should take the initiative to check all graded work.
  • Students and guardians are always encouraged to double check the accuracy of grades on returned assignments.
  • In the event an error is found, the student or guardian is welcome to bring it to the attention of the teacher and return the assignment, with a description of the error, for regrading.
  • If the error is verified, the teacher will update the student’s grade in the official record to reflect the revised score.
  • If the grading error is “in the student’s favor,” the student will not be penalized for the grading error, though the teacher still appreciates such errors being called to his attention.
  • Please note that all grading guidelines are subject to change and decisions may be made on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the teacher.
