Grades and Reporting
Students receive progress reports in the form of report cards at the end of each quarter and semester. Students will also receive academic progress reports ("D" and "F" slips) in the middle of each quarter, or at any time the teacher feels the need to send one home. Students [Parents] who have concerns about their grades should talk to their teachers to determine how they can improve their performance. Parent-teacher conferences will be held in the fall and as scheduled on the school calendar. Parents should contact the school to set up a meeting with a teacher / Principal if needed at some other time.
Students who receive an incomplete in a class must complete the class within two weeks after the start of the next quarter. Extensions may be granted by the teacher with the permission of the Principal. Failure to finish an incomplete will result in a failing grade and subsequent loss of credit. *See allowed make up period.
*Student assessment should be based on a three-prong approach to overall student development-- Mastery, Improvement & Effort.
The Seymour Community School District Grading Scale is as follows:

For those classes, or for project-type work within classes that do not lend themselves well to a percentage grading scale, it is suggested that each project be assigned a value of 100 points, and the project be graded on a basis of 0-100 points, with various criteria being assigned a given number of points by the instructor.
****STUDENTS [Excused] FROM/OUT OF A CLASS- WILL BE ASSIGNED ALTERNATIVE ACTIVITIES, LABS, OR PROJECTS FOR CREDIT TO REPLACE CLASSROOM POINTS AND PROMOTE STUDENT MASTERY OF THE SUBJECT.
