Grading and Reporting The EC Way
A Message from Superintendent of Schools
Additionally, this system includes a grading and reporting component for behavior. Like academic content, desirable behavior will be explicitly taught, graded, and reported. Behavioral skills will be categorized under the standards of safe, respectful, and responsible and will be reported separate from academic progress. Our intent is for every student to be challenged, encouraged, and motivated to persistently work to master academic skills and content while, at the same time, developing the strength of character that reflects the values of the East Central community (link to POG). We believe that an academically capable student, who also demonstrates sound judgment, reliability, and a relentless work ethic, will have more options available to them in their future than those who do not.
Although our secondary campuses are applying the same grading and reporting guidelines, a standards-based system for these grade levels is still under review with the goal of implementation in the 20162017 school year.
As always, it is an honor to serve the children and families of the East Central community and I look forward to your feedback. Thanks to each of you for your ongoing support and continued partnership in the education of our children!
Sincerely, Roland Toscano
