    Remote Learning Grading Policies at Ballard High School

    The following policies were put into place at the start of 2nd Quarter with the purpose to ease student's stress about grades during online remote learning.

    • Late work is accepted by all teachers with no penalties.
    • All missing assignments are entered as 50% in the grade book (does not apply to missing tests/quizzes)

    What to do if your teacher is not following these policies?

    • Check to make sure it was work assigned on or after Nov 6, 2020, because that was when the new policies were implemented.
    • Email your teacher and ask about it. Maybe they just haven't updated the grades yet (keep in mind teachers are struggling during this time too and are likely behind on grading, so be patient).
    • Contact Mr. Wynkoop or your Assistant Principal and let them know what is going on. 

    Read more about the Ballard HS grading policies on the November 18, 2020 Principal letters to BHS families.


    District Grading Policy

    "A" through "C-" or "Incomplete" grades are the only options for final grade marking for the 2020-21 school year.

    The "C-" final grade cut off is 70% on the 100 point scale. This means if your student has a grade below 70% as their final grade, they will receive an "Incomplete."

    An "Incomplete" will only be earned after a detailed support process involving the teacher, relevant learning team (e.g., IEP team), and school leaders.

    As in the spring, "D" and "E" scores will still be visible in the gradebook and on the Source. However, teachers will convert "D" and "E" grades into "Incomplete" final grades at the end of the semester.

    Courses that are designated as "Pass/No Pass" before the start of the semester will be graded as "Pass/Incomplete" at the end of the semester. Visit the district Grading and Progress Report page for more details and the Remote Learning Resources page.
