The Board believes that the issuance of grades serves to promote continuous evaluation of student performance, to inform the student and his parents of the student's performance, and to provide a basis for bringing about change, when necessary, in student performance.

Citizenship grades are based on behavior and should not be deducted from scholastic grades. Citizenship shall be marked as follows:

The student is responsible for completing all work missed during absences. (EXCEPTIONS: In case of modified day and/or suspension, see Board Policies "Code of Behavior and Discipline" and "Student Suspensions"). It is the responsibility of the student to contact the teacher(s) in order to obtain required assignment(s) missed during absences.
The work of a student whose grades are satisfactory, but are withheld because of failure to complete the required work shall be reported as incomplete "I". If the incomplete is not removed within the following nine weeks period, it will then become an "F". Also, if the incomplete is not removed between the time school is out in the spring and the time school begins in the fall, the incomplete "I" will become an "F".
