SECONDARY SEMESTER-BASED GRADING

For Secondary grade levels, the district is switching from a quarter-based grading system to a semester-based grading system. In other words, grades will no longer be fixed at the end of the quarter; they will instead be cumulative throughout each semester. This means that the Quarter 1 and Quarter 3 progress reports can still provide important information about a student’s progress but these grades will continue to accumulate and change for the remainder of the semester.

There is no change for Elementary grade levels.

If you have any questions, please contact Principal of Teaching & Learning, Amanda Thornton, at amanda.thornton@wyischina.com.
