I gather that there has been some confusion regarding grades.
I imported current ELA class grades to the end of term gradebook on Friday 5.14.21. They are not finalized grades- but they do show where students are performing right now.
Each teacher may indicate an earlier date for turning in missing/ makeup work.
This is to make sure that the last week that students have access to district issued devices (before 5.28.21) that we will be able to reach students who still need to get their grades up.
We will continue to work with students who need extra support and have extenuating circumstances. The grade file closes on June 4th at 10 am. Any changes after that time can only be made with administrative approval.
For my class, students should turn in all missing/makeup work by 5.24.21 at 2:30 pm.
Some assignments cannot be made up late. STAR tests must be completed by 2 pm on Wednesday 5.19.21 to get credit in SIS.
