DSJ Student Curriculum Guidelines and Standards:

Academic Assessment
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.

Grading Scale
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
