Grading Guidelines for APS High School Students

Dear Parents and Guardians of APS High School Students, 

First, thank you for all that you have done to support your student in working toward completion of their assigned work during this Emergency Remote Learning Plan. We hope that your family is safe and well during this very challenging time. 

As you are aware, we are down to three weeks left in the school year before we complete our Emergency Remote Learning Plan in response to the unprecedented COVID-19 epidemic. We have been closely monitoring student course completion. As a result, the grading guidelines have been revised to address the needs of our high school students. Please see below for details about how your student’s grades will be determined. 

Students completing performance task courses

  • Upon completion of a performance task, students will earn the higher grade between the performance task grade and the grade earned during 3rd quarter.  
  • If a student earned an ‘F’ in the 3rd quarter and does not successfully complete the performance task, the student will receive an ‘In Progress’ (IP) grade and will be eligible and highly encouraged to participate in APS summer school.
  • If at the end of summer school the student has not successfully completed the performance task, the IP will be converted to an ‘Audit’ (AU) and will be recorded as the student’s final grade for that course.  

Students completing courses in Edgenuity

  • Students must complete at least 50% of each Edgenuity course for a grade to be recorded.
  • Previously assigned credit recovery Edgenuity courses need to be 100% complete. These courses need to meet 100% completion since they were assigned prior to COVID-19.
  • Students will earn the higher grade between Edgenuity and the grade earned in the 3rd quarter.  
  • If a student earned an ‘F ’in the 3rd quarter and does not successfully complete the course(s) in Edgenuity, the student will receive an ‘In Progress’ (IP) grade and will be eligible and highly encouraged to participate in APS summer school.
  • If at the end of summer school the student has not passed the Edgenuity course(s), the IP will be converted to an ‘Audit’ (AU) and will be recorded as the student’s final grade for that course.  

Additional notes

  • Students who are concurrently enrolled in college courses will receive grades based on concurrent enrollment grading guidelines.
  • An AU does not earn credit for the course, but will not adversely affect the student’s GPA. 
  • Summer school will begin for assigned students on Monday, June 1, and will be instructed through APS Avenues

If you are not sure what grades your student earned during 3rd quarter, please check Infinite Campus Parent Portal or reach out to staff members at your student’s school. If your student is experiencing difficult circumstances, please contact your student’s counselor to discuss your situation. The last day for work submission is Thursday, May 21. 

We look forward to continuing to partner with you to support your student’s success.
