DSJ Student Curriculum Guidelines and Standards:
Progress Reports - ProgressBook acts as an ongoing progress report. These are to inform you of what is going on with your child(ren) in academics and behavior. If you have any questions, be sure to contact the teacher. ProgressBook should be monitored at least weekly.
St. John’s Elementary School uses the “A” through “F” grading system for Grades 1-6.
The purpose for evaluating the student both in subject matter areas and in character development is that both parents/guardians and teacher(s) may cooperate in helping the student to reach his/her highest potential. If there are any questions, the child’s teacher should be notified.
Grading System And Procedures For Grading
> Teachers must keep accurate grading records. This is so necessary when it comes time to make out report cards. It is the only way one has to justify the grades given. It is also necessary to keep these grades throughout the year in order to clarify any questions which might arise.
> Grades are to be given for all subjects taught. This includes music, art, physical education are considered part of the Honor Roll.
> Grades range from A through F - as listed to the right. In addition, the following maybe used:
O = Outstanding
S = Satisfactory Progress
I = Improving
N = Needs Improvement
U = Unsatisfactory Progress
X = Not Evaluated
Junior High / High School
The school calculates quarterly grade point averages to determine honor roll. This is not to be confused with a student’s cumulative grade point average which is determined by averaging the student’s final grades. Final grades are calculated using a percentage of each quarter grade and semester exam earned throughout the duration of the course. Credits for courses are earned on a semester basis.
