# Grading Policy and the Power of I:

All middle school teachers, except Algebra 1 and English, will use the following grade calculation methods:

1. Yearly average will be calculated averaging each semester equally for non credit-bearing S1 = 50% and S2 = 50%
2. Semester Averages will be calculated where each quarter weighs 45% and the semester exam will count 10%.
1. Semester 1 (S1) will calculate as Q1 = 45%, Q2 = 45% and E1 = 10%
2. Semester 2 (S2) will calculate as Q3 = 45%, Q4 = 45% and E2 = 10%
3. Semester Averages for year long credit bearing courses will be calculated as follows:
1. Semester 1 (S1) will calculate as Q1 = 45%, Q2 = 45% and E1 = 10%
2. Semester 2 (S2) will calculate as Q3 = 40%, Q4 = 40% and E2 = 20%

POWER of I

Major assignments MUST be redone if the student makes below a 59/F.  .  However, the highest grade they can receive is a 70.  Also, they can retest twice per quarter.  Students have 5 school days to do this.
