  • Grading PolicyGrading scale is: 90-100% = A80-89% = B70-79% = C60-69% = D59% and below = F

    Please be advised that California State Standards do not allow students to receive a grade of C or above on report cards unless they are doing grade level work that meets the standards; I will, therefore, grade assignments accordingly. Please encourage your child to always try their best and praise your child for completing assignments on time.
