If a student is performing poorly (Student with “Does not Meet” in two (2) or more subjects)
in any trimester, he/she may be placed on academic probation until such time as his/her
performance improves. After consultation with teachers, parents and activity sponsors, the
Principal may decide that the student may not participate in Co-Curricular activities, social
events or travel to sports tournaments. Students on academic probation may be required to
attend Homework Club for additional support.
Report cards may also use the following abbreviations to discuss the circumstances of a
particular child’s learning experience.
This child’s curriculum has been modified to allow the child to demonstrate success. Students
with a modified curriculum are generally receiving academic support. The report card
comments should adequately explain modifications and how the child has met the adjusted
To be eligible for a “New to English” (NE) grade, a student must be a “beginner” on the WIDA
testing scale. “New to English” grades may also be assigned at the discretion of the Principal.
NE indicates that the child has had modified curriculum and/or assessment experiences.
Students who are in the intermediate or advanced range may have accommodations made
in order that they can demonstrate their understanding, but they will be assessed against the
regular standards and benchmarks at that grade-level.
An “Incomplete” grade indicates that the teacher has incomplete or insufficient evidence to
assess this child’s proficiency. This may be because a student is new to the school, has been
absent from classes or has not turned in sufficient material for assessment. Comments on the
report card will describe the circumstances for each child.
This standard has not been assessed this trimester.
In a learning community, each one of us seeks to learn, to be understood, to be treated fairly,
to treat others fairly and to be honest in our relationships with people and with our school
work. Integrity is one of the single most significant character traits for happiness and success.
Below, we have detailed elements for consideration with respect to academic integrity.
• Using any notes, study aids or information on a test or quiz without the teacher’s
• Changing graded work after it has been returned, and then submitting the work for
re-grading (unless the student has been specifically asked to complete revisions).
