Students receive a final grade in each course based on the average of post-tests and review tests. (Refer to GPA/Class rank policy in next section.)
Once a student has completed a course, the final grade is recorded on his AAR (transcript) and credit is awarded, provided the student earns a minimum grade of 70%.
Report cards for Gateway Tech students look a little different than in a traditional school. Grades are reported on a nine-week basis (refer to the school calendar for dates.)
The report card will list only the courses that the student has completed during the school year. The grade listed next to each completed course is the final grade. Interim grades per nine week reporting period are not recorded on the report card.
Edgenuity sends a progress report out to parents each week. The two most important details are included in this report:
- the overall grade in each course
- the percentage of the course complete
- This progress report will help parents and students know how they are progressing along the way. Students generally do not fail a course, but it is possible for them not to progress at an acceptable rate.
- In the event that a student is not progressing well, a parent-teacher-student conference will be held to discuss this. Parents are encouraged to review this report every three weeks and contact the school with any concerns or questions.
