Academic Regulations: Grading & Report Cards
Grading Criteria & Grading Promotion
Eighth Street Middle School operates on a yearly system for grades seven and eight. Averaging the four nine week’s grades to arrive at the final yearly grade will derive a student’s grade.
Report cards will be issued to the students at the end of each "nine-weeks," approximately five days after the end of the grading period. Report cards for the final nine weeks will be mailed to the student's home.
A progress report will be given to each student after four and one-half weeks of each nine-week grading period. Parents will be notified by news media of the day Mid-quarter reports are to be given.
