Remote Learning Attendance Policy

  • All core content and electives teachers will record weekly attendance in Infinite Campus.  

  • Attendance will be taken Sunday by 5pm. 

  • Student attendance will  be accounted for by teachers gathering and keeping track of evidence/artifacts (writings, videos, worksheets, projects) that students complete aligned to expectations outlined by the teacher.  

  • Students must attempt the assigned task(s) to be considered ‘present’ during that week of remote learning.  

  • If a student is not ‘attending’ based on these parameters, the teacher or appropriate designee will contact the family to determine what adjustments or modifications might be needed to help the student engage successfully in the remote learning experience. 

Remote Learning Grading Policy

  • All core content and electives teachers will record weekly grades  in Infinite Campus.

  • Grades will be entered weekly starting the week of Friday, April 10, 2020.  

  • Weekly assignments due on Fridays will be graded and entered by the following Friday.

  • Student grades will be recorded based on teachers gathering and keeping track of evidence/artifacts (writings, videos, worksheets, projects) that students complete aligned to expectations outlined by the teacher.  

  • Teachers will post rubrics with assignments that clearly outline the grading expectations for that particular assignment.

  • The method of assessment, grading, and providing feedback to students is left to the discretion of common-course teams with guidance and approval from the administrator assigned to that grade level or department. 

  • Assignments will stay open after the deadline for grading and feedback, but attendance will not be changed.

  • Retakes and multiple assessments will be allowed.

  • Student grades will be recorded based on the Adams 12 Standards-Based Grading Scale:

    • 4 - Exceeds the Standard

    • 3 - Meets the Standard

    • 2 - Approaches the Standard

    • 1 - Does Not Meet the Standard
