Parent Conferences

Parents wishing to meet with their child's teacher can do so by contacting their Guidance Counselor or Teacher via phone or email.
 

 Grading

Semester grades are reported at the end of the Fall and Spring semesters, and become part of a student's permanent record. The Fall semester normally ends in late January or early February and the Spring semester in June. Each semester is broken into three grading periods. The grades received at the end of the first and second triads are considered progress reports and do not become part of the student's permanent record. However, students and parents are encouraged to pay close attention to triad grades because they are an indication of what grade the student will receive at the end of the semester.



 

Homework

District and school policy provides that each academic course should have approximately 30 minutes of homework per night. Students in college prep classes will usually spend considerably more time on homework. Thus, each student who expects to earn a "C" average or better should devote a minimum of 90 to 100 minutes on homework each school night.
