Q3 Grading Plan

posted Apr 22, 2020, 10:20 AM by Amy Belhumeur
Attached please find the Q3 grading plan that was approved by the school committee last night.  Important to note for the Middle School:
  • All students have an opportunity to make up missing Q3 work (anything missing prior to school closure on March 13th).  Teachers have been reaching out to students directly if they are missing work as Powerschool is currently unavailable.  Please touch base with your child's teacher if you have questions about any work in Quarter 3.  
  • All students will be able to submit up to 3 assignments done during Phase 1 remote learning for extra credit in Quarter 3.  Teachers will be communicating exactly what assignments and the due dates in Google Classroom for all students later today. All assignments will count at a 100 classwork grade in accordance to the grading policy in their class/subject.
  • Quarter 3 will not have citizenship grades or comments from teachers.
  • As this is an unusual grading period, there will not be a Q3 or Q4 honor roll published. 
  • Quarter 3 and 4 will have no effect on those students already in NJHS or those newly inducted to NJHS this year.  Mrs. Grzembski and Miss Belhumeur are currently looking at how to adjust the determination criteria for next school year in relation to the Q3 and Q4 this year. 

Other notes:

-  We are currently looking at how to best get students personal belongings as the school is currently not accessible.  As soon as we have a plan we will reach out to parents and students on how that will work.

-  Student Council is putting together fun spirit activities for all students to participate in virtually, so be on the look out for that!

In closing, there are a lot of unanswered questions or issues that school being closed for the remainder of the year has posed for administration and staff.  Please be patient as we work through many of these and as we have more information it will be communicated out.
