My Expectations & Grading

Academic Grades

This year, we’re trying something a little different. Work will be graded using Mrs. Schumacher’s Grading Scale, shown here:

Citizenship Grades

  • All students begin each semester with a “Satisfactory” citizenship grade.
  • In order to earn a “Good” or “Excellent” grade, students must regularly help others, participate, and follow the general school & classroom rules.
  • Additionally, each unit, students will set an Active Learning Goal, targeting an area of weakness and trying to improve upon it. Efforts towards achieving this goal will also contribute towards a student’s citizenship grade.
  • Please check out the rubric below.
