Policy No. 2420

The board believes that the cooperation of school and home is a vital ingredient in the growth and education of the student and recognizes the responsibility to keep parents informed of student welfare and progress in school.

The issuance of grades, written progress reports and parent conferences on a regular schedule serves as the basis for continuous evaluation of the student's performance and determining changes that should be made to effect improvement. These written and verbal reports shall be designed to provide information that will be helpful to the student, teacher, counselor, and parent.

The district shall comply with the marking/grading system incorporated into the statewide standardized high school transcript. Secondary student's grade points shall be reported for each term, individually and cumulatively.

The superintendent will establish a system of reporting student progress and shall require all staff members to comply with such a system as part of their teaching responsibility.

The superintendent is authorized to develop and implement the necessary regulations for the administration of this policy.
