Grades 3-6 Updates
- In grade 3, students will still receive the indicator scores (E, P, D, and B) for their special area classes only. Students’ core content area grades will reflect letter grades and percentages (A, B, C, D, and F), which is meant to help facilitate a smooth transition to the upper elementary building and scoring system.
- Students will continue to be assessed using letter grades and percentages (A, B, C, D, and F) in their core content areas. In their special area classes (music, health/P.E., art, world language, and keyboarding/computer applications), students will receive a limited number of indicator scores (E, P, and D).
- Students in the music performance groups (band, orchestra, and chorus) in Grade 6 will receive letter grades and percentages to match the performance group scoring at the middle level to prepare them for the transition to Grade 7.
