Report Cards & Progress Reports

Report cards are issued quarterly and at the end of each semester.  Eight week quarter grades are progress indicators and are also used to determine eligibility in MVAL sports and some other activities. Semester grades (16 weeks) at the half-way point and at the end of the school year are final grades that are used in the Grade Point Average calculation and for activity eligibility.  Progress Reports are issued midway between quarters to students who are performing poorly in a class and also can indicate satisfactory class performance.  Parents can contact the teacher directly for further clarification.  Paper copies of first quarter grades are distributed at Parent Conferences in November, but are posted on School Loop the second week of November.  First semester and third quarter grades are issued to students in mid-February and late April respectively.  Second semester grades are mailed home approximately ten days after the last day of school.  All grades are posted on School Loop for easy parent access (see link on orange ribbon on the left that covers this topic). Units are earned at the end of each semester for passing grades.  Most courses earn five units per class period, per semester.

Progress Reports

In an effort to notify parents about their students progress in school, you will receive Progress Reports in the mail. Teachers can send Progress Reports to students who are successful in classes as well as in situations  where students are struggling. In some cases, students will receive an N grade which means no grade was issued at the present time by the teacher. In these cases teachers will often add a comment rather than a grade to indicate current progress. If a class is left off the Progress Report then this means that the teacher opted for no progress report because the student is making satisfactory progress. Teachers will send Progress Reports for any student who has a D or F and in some cases, a low C if the student has been inconsistent in his/her performance in the class. It is the teacher's obligation to notify the parent through either a Progress Report or other parent contact when a student is in danger of failing.
The Progress Report acts as a warning to parents about their student's difficulties with enough time left in the quarter or semester that the student can work toward raising the grade. The low grade can be the result of multiple or singular issues which will be listed on the form. Poor test grades, missing or incomplete assignments, missing class and classroom behavioral problems that interfere with class work are common reasons for sending Progress Reports.
Progress Reports are sent by mail midway through each quarter; the beginning of October, December and March, and mid-May.  Grades and Progress Reports are also  posted on School Loop for easy parent access (see link on orange ribbon on the left that covers this topic). Parents are encouraged to contact their student's teacher through School Loop or by phone when a Progress Report arrives to clarify the reason for the notice and to help their student get back on track in class. Inquire with teachers or counselors about tutoring opportunities (check the tutoring web page on the orange ribbon to the left) on campus if your student needs extra help. Our goal is to see that all students successfully complete courses with passing grades by informing both parents and their students of what they can do to improve.  
Parents:  Are you concerned about your students grades?  Not sure how they are doing at this point of the school year?  Use School Loop to view academic performance and to contact teachers directly. You can also request that your students counselor set up a Student Study Team Meeting; affording an opportunity to speak with your students entire teaching team in person.
