Students receive new grading system for fifth six weeks

Posted at 4:39 PM, Apr 02, 2020

Corpus Christi Independent School District students who are finishing their fifth six-weeks grading period at home are going to see a different report card.

According to a letter to parents from the district, the district will provide a "pass" or "incomplete" grading method for the current six weeks.

The district has not determined whether these grading guidelines will continue for the final six weeks of the school year. A decision is expected to be made in the next several weeks.

The change will apply to students in the first grade and above. The student's grades will depend on the work submitted, and conferences they have with faculty members by telephone or by video.

An incomplete grade can be expected if the following happens:

  • The student was failing at the three-week progress reporting period.
  • Staff have not been able to contact the student during the school closure period.
  • It has not been confirmed if the student has received any of their online or offline instruction material.
  • Teachers have been in contact with the student, but no work has been produced.

Students who receive an "incomplete" grade will have through April 24 to make up missing assignments and change their grade to passing. Those who do not finish their make-up work by that date will be considered failing for that six-weeks grading period.

More details will be coming soon on how this grading system could affect the final grades of graduating seniors.
