Elementary school grades

Schools will send report cards home that include students' grades from the start of the 2019-20 school year through March 13, the last day children were in school before the closure. From March 16 through the end of the year, teachers' will help students progress as much as possible, knowing that remote education is not the same as in-class experiences. Grades will not be given during this time.

Middle and high school grades

PSD administrators and secondary principals determined a grading model for students in grades 9-12 during remote education. For middle and high schools with semester-long classes, the third-quarter grade will be the minimum grade a student can receive in a class. Students are expected to complete remote learning assignments. Student work in the fourth quarter may only improve a student's final grade from third quarter. PSD believes it's important that work during remote education only help and not penalize a student, knowing many things are going on with students and families right now. 

A pass-fail model was considered, but was determined to not be the most optimal for PSD. District and school leaders opted to use a model that allows for learning without negatively impacting kids.

At schools that follow a block-course model (i.e. Rocky Mountain High School and Polaris Expeditionary Learning School), students will earn a grade based on the essential learning in the class.
