What do we do with the grades that we receive?
  • These grades must be given to the classroom teacher with the instruction that they are to be averaged in with grades already received in that class. If a student does not return to school during the school year, our Educational Transfer Summary should be kept in the student’s cumulative file, which will be the only record since teachers have no ability to record our grades.
  • Most of the students who are in Detention come back with much higher grades than they left with and it doesn’t seem fair to average these grades in.
  • Students are in school from 8 a.m. until 2:45 p.m. each day. There are never more than eight students in a class, allowing for a great deal of individualized attention. Students typically attend school each and every day. These grades earned are legitimate and reflect the outstanding instruction students receive while here.
