The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has provided a great deal of flexibility in grading procedures and guidelines during this school closure. After reviewing several examples provided by TEA and carefully considering all options, MISD has developed this grading policy to meet the diverse needs of our students, families and staff. This policy is subject to change based on any new TEA or state requirements or guidelines.
To receive credit and attendance for the courses during the school closure, students must complete and submit their assignments.
Grading period for the 5th six-weeks will end on Thursday April 9th. For this 5th six-weeks grading period, students had 4 weeks of grades that were earned in a face to face setting from February 18-March 13. In addition to those grades, students will also earn grades of Incomplete (I) or Complete (95) for the weeks we have been doing Remote Learning.
MISD will follow the same grading procedures for any portion of the 6th six-weeks grading period that we remain closed.
All GPA and class rank calculations for MHS students and 8th grade students taking high school courses will only include grades through the end of the 4th six-weeks grading period, which is the last full grading- period when students attended on-campus classes.
Grades reported for students during the 5th six-weeks grading period and for any portion of the 6th six-weeks grading period we are closed, will not affect students’ GPA or class rank.
Students who have an Incomplete entered for an assignment and do not complete and submit Remote Learning Work by May 15, 2020 will receive a grade of 60. (Date subject to change if returning to school is delayed).
Semester and year-end grades will be updated and finalized after the last day of school.
We understand that our students will need support when completing assignments, including explanation of instructions, tutoring or reteaching, and we encourage all of our students and families to communicate directly with their teachers to schedule a session via the phone or a virtual platform.MISD teachers and administrators will be available to help each student be as successful as possible during this time of new learning formats.
