80/20 Grading Policy

Please explain the 80/20 grading policy.

Whenever a student learns new material he or she goes through a time of wrestling with the material before eventually mastering the information or skills. It is expected that a student will make some mistakes during this learning process. Work completed during this learning period is considered academic practice. 20% of the total course grade comes from academic practice and will consist of some quizzes, homework, first drafts of writing, teacher questions during instruction, some worksheets, informal observations or pre-testing.

After a student has had sufficient instruction and practice on a topic, it is then reasonable to judge his/her mastery of the information or skills in the form of academic achievement assessments. The purpose is to evaluate how well a student has learned the material. 80% of the total course grade comes from academic achievement and will consist of tests (oral, written and performance), some quizzes, some homework, writings, projects or presentations.
 
How can I tell the difference between academic practice and academic achievement in ProgressBook?
Teachers code their assignments as either academic progress or academic achievement. In ProgressBook, you may choose to view assignments by assignment type

Parent-Teacher Conferences

How often are parent-teacher conferences held at GHS?
There are four conference nights at Green High School. Two are held in the fall and two are held in the spring. To schedule a conference, use the online conference scheduling system or call the main office at 330-896-7575 for more information.

How do I schedule a conference with my child's teacher(s)?
To schedule a conference on one of the four conference nights, use the online conference scheduling system or call the main office at 330-896-7575 for more information. To conference with a teacher at another time, please contact the teacher directly.

In the online conference scheduler, can teachers' room numbers display next to their names so that when a parent schedules the conference, we can schedule in somewhat of an orderly fashion and not be walking in circles all over the building?
This is a great suggestion. We expect this feature to be available for Spring 2010 conferences.
