Levels of SBG Implementation:

Full = Implemented at all grade levels or content areas.

Moving Forward = School has implemented in some, but not all grade levels or content areas. A plan is in place to scale SBG system-wide within the next 1-2 years.

Beginning Soon = School has one or more teachers currently implementing SBG with plans to scale further within the next 3-4 years.

Beginning Later = School has one or more teachers currently implementing SBG with plans to scale further within the next 5+ years.

Investigating = School has one or more teachers currently implementing SBG, however does not currently have a plan to systematically shift to SBG.

No Plan = School does not use standards-based grading in any classrooms, and is not planning to do so at this time.
