Standards Based Grading
School District of Superior
In the School District of Superior, we approach assessment and reporting as an important part of a student’s understanding of his/her progress as a learner, as well as a tool for communicating progress to parents, colleges, and the community. In order to ensure that grades accurately reflect student learning, we are implementing a proficiency-based grading system in all classes. This system separates academic grades from reports on student behavior.
Reassessment information and the reassessment form.
At SMS and SHS, students are expected to complete coursework within the timelines outlined by the teachers. However, extensions for submission of assignments are based on individual circumstances, after a conversation between teacher and student has occurred. In a situation where a student wants an opportunity to reassess and demonstrate learning, students may be allowed to retake assessments based on teacher approval.
