FPS Standards-Based Grading Committee
Members Of The Committee
The standards-based grading committee is made up of teachers, support staff, and administrators. Additional stakeholders may be consulted as plans are designed for future implementation.
The charge of the Standards-Based Grading Committee is taken directly from one of the improvement priorities found in the AdvancEd report completed in March of 2016.
- Improvement Priority: Document, implement, and evaluate a system-wide expectation for a collaborative structure that includes alignment of the curriculum with identified essential learning targets as well as common grading and assessment practices.
Much of the content presented within the pages of this website represents information utilized by the standards-based grading committee as they work to develop common grading and assessment practices for Farmington Public Schools. It is important to note that not everything presented here will necessarily be adopted by FPS.
