Crediting

A successfully completed:

  • Nine-week course receives 1/4 credit (unit)
  • Eighteen-week course receives a 1/2 unit
  • Thirty-six week course receives 2 half units

A passing grade must be received in both semesters of a 36-week course. Students who see they are in danger of failing the first semester should contact their teacher no later than one month before the end of the semester. Letter grades will be used for all subjects taken as requirements to meet graduation needs. Any incomplete work not made up within 3 weeks after an extended absence results in an “F”. Courses may be dropped or added within the first 5 days of school.

Each teacher is required to calculate grades according to percentages or a point system which converts to percentages. This assures the students accurate results on grading procedures. All college level courses taugh at Madonna High School on the Madonna campus will use the Madonna grading scale.

Progress Reports

Progress reports are used to provide students with a warning regarding inadequate academic performance and attendance performance. They permit the students and parents to be aware of this performance and attendance performance. They permit the students and parents to be aware of this performance and the fact that failure in the subject is possible. Progress reports encourage students to take suggested means toward improvement. They also help to keep parents and students informed of the specific progress of a student in a particular subject area.

Progress Reports are completed after 4 1/2 weeks into the marking period. A Progress Report is completed on any student who is failing a subject, any student who has a grade of “D” and is not working to their best ability, or if a substantial difference exists between demonstrated performance and actual achievement. Students are re-evaluated after 6 weeks into the marking period. At the request of the administration, a student may be placed on academic and/or disciplinary probation.
