Grading Info

The District has realized fourth nine weeks was challenging due to Internet access and instructional support while attempting to complete the packets and work assigned to students for the 2019-2020 school year.

Therefore, all Grenada School District students will receive a grade of one hundred for the fourth nine weeks and a grade of one hundred for final exams for grades 6-12. One hundred points is the maximum amount of points that can be awarded during a grading period. By awarding each student one hundred points for the final grading period, the extended school closure will not have a negative impact on promotion/retention when averaged in with the previous grading periods. The fourth nine weeks grades will be averaged with the other three nine weeks to determine the student’s final grade in each course and will coincide with the promotion/retention policy of the district.

The district is taking steps to improve our distance learning process. The school is going 1 to 1 with computers for grades 1-12 beginning in the fall. Also, the school has purchased Canvas an online format to provide instruction in a very structured way. The teachers are working extremely hard on developing online materials such as instructional videos, assignments, assessments, etc. For students who do not have internet, the district is looking for ways to provide every student with solutions such as hot spots, zip drive instruction, and other means. In the event school must be closed for long term, the district will be prepared to continue to provide a quality education.

Thank you for your support and stay safe.

Valedictorian and Salutatorian

The Valedictorian and Salutatorian, the top two students in the class, may not have had the opportunity to deliver their speech to the hundreds of people normally in attendance, but this in no way diminishes the work they put in to achieve these honors. Four years of hard work and dedication brought these two students to the highest achievements attainable in high school. And yes, they did get to give their speeches; they just delivered them on video.
