Grading Practices Committee

The Adams 12 Five Star Schools Learning Services team engaged over 2,000 district stakeholders during the 2016-17 school year to collect input regarding the implementation and practice of Standards Based and Standards Referenced Grading throughout the district. As a result of that work, a Grading Practices Committee was created to help evaluate stakeholder feedback, identify ways our current grading practices may be improved, and what additional support is needed for educators, students and parents.

The Grading Practices Committee is comprised of volunteer educators from various schools and departments including school administrators, teachers, specialized service providers (SPED, ELL, etc.) and district support staff.

Grading Practices Committee Task

  1. Review feedback provided by stakeholders regarding grading practices in Adams 12 Five Star Schools.

  2. Determine areas in which current grading practices are benefiting students and families, as well as areas in which grading practices may be improved.

  3. Present any recommended adjustments/changes to the current grading practices to the Chief Academic Officer and Superintendent.
