James Hart School Remote Learning
A special note from Dr. McAlister regarding grades as we enter Remote Learning:
So how will we determine a student's third trimester grade?
For all assignments During Remote Learning, teachers will use one of three notations in their gradebook:
T- the assignment was 'turned in' and the student engaged with the material fully and attempted to complete it to the best of their ability. This determination will be made by the teacher using their professional judgement.
I- the assignment was turned in but was 'incomplete.' Work was submitted but there were significant gaps or the work submitted did not meet the assignment parameters.
M- the assignment was not turned in (i.e., it was 'missing') or was of such poor quality that it does not merit a mark of 'I.'
During Remote Learning, students must be actively engaged with their assignments and receive a mark of 'T' on 70% of their assignments in order to receive a grade of passing for the third trimester. Students actively engaged with Remote Learning in this manner will not have additional summer school work required.
Students who do not receive a 'T' on at least 70% of their assignments for any given class will be considered for mandatory summer school so that we can ensure they have mastered essential standards for their grade level.
It is important to remember that the goal of Remote Learning is that our students are actively engaged with their work and are attempting all of the assignments for their classes. Students who receive marks of 'I' or 'M' during Remote Learning may always improve those scores by submitting or re-submitting those assignments. Students need to notify their teachers via e-mail that an assignment has been re-submitted if they want the teacher to review it again.
Please contact your student’s teacher if you should have any questions. You may also reach out to me directly if you have additional questions.
