School Closure Grading Guidelines

COVID 19’s impact on our community has required us to change our process for progress monitoring.

The Lovejoy ISD School Closure Grading Guidelines linked below will be followed during the portion of time schools are closed during this 2019-2020 spring semester.

School Closure Grading Guidelines

Learning @Home model will continue our students' education through our focused "3-E" philosophy.

Essential Learning - Weekly learning activities designed to address the most essential standards and concepts described for each grade level and course in the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).

Extensions - Optional and ungraded components of the weekly lessons that will allow students to deepen their understanding of identified Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). K-4 extension activities are described on the right side of the one pager. Grades 5-12 extensions are available in Google Classroom.

Enrichment - Growing list of resources (applications, programs, websites, etc.) that have been identified to provide opportunities for students to gain or practice skills, however, these resources are not intended to be tightly aligned to TEKS addressed in weekly lesson plans.
