Grades and Attendance
I know there has been some confusion in regards to grades and attendance so I am going to try and make it as understandable as possible. 
Grades -
  • If the student was passing a class as of March 13 with at least a 60%, they will get credit for that class.  While we are strongly encouraging all students to continue with the online learning to improve for next year, it is NOT required.  
  • If the student was NOT passing as of March 13, they must continue to do the work provided by the teacher until a 60% is achieved and credit is earned.  At that point, the student is no longer required to do the work.
Attendance - We are still required by the state to take attendance
If the student was passing as of March 13 and they are choosing to not continue with the online learning they MUST email the teacher to let him/her know.  At this point the teacher will mark the student present for the rest of the school year.
  • If the student was not passing as of March 13, they must continue with the class in order to be marked present.  There is no such thing as "Opting Out" of a failed class.  Students will be marked "present" on a weekly basis based on their participation in the class or contact with the teacher for each week.  Examples of this would include but are not limited to, attending zoom meetings, email interactions with their teacher, turning in assignments.  If the student does not participate or continue contact with their teacher at least once throughout the week, the student will be marked "unexcused absent" for that week.  
  • Attendance does not affect grades.
I hope this helps clear up any confusion you may have had.  If you have further questions, these should be directed to your teachers.  I realize these can be frustrating times because all of our lives have been turned upside down.  You also haven't been trained to be teachers and now you are kind of thrust into that role.  Again, we are here to help you and really miss seeing our students in school!  Stay safe and healthy and we all hope to be seeing you again soon!
Go Cardinals!
