Grading

We have updated our high school grading policy for this semester, based on a new directive from the Washington State Superintendent of Public Instruction. This directive applies to all school districts in the state.

All high school students (as well as middle school students earning high school credit) will receive letter grades (A, B, C or Incomplete.) No grades of D or F will be assigned. 

Students will receive the grade they had as of March 17, or they can improve their grade by:

  • Completing work assigned before March 17.
  • Completing work assigned since the transition to distance learning.

Students who currently have a D are encouraged to improve their grades to a C or better. 

A student who had F grades as of March 17 and does not improve their grade by the end of the semester will receive an Incomplete and will be given an opportunity to earn the credit later. Our goal is for all students to earn credit, and teachers will support students to improve F grades and earn credit.

Middle school students will receive pass or incomplete at the end of the semester.

If you have any questions about your student’s grades, please contact their teacher or principal.
