District changing to 2 card markings per semester for High School Students

The district has decided to move from six marking periods per year to four.  The move to quarters was made to simplify the grading and communication process.  This will not change how parents look online and get live feedback on grades.  Parent teacher conference dates will be adjusted to fit the new system.  Those dates will be finalized soon..  

  • Quarter 1 – cumulative weeks for 1-9
  • Semester 1 – cumulative for weeks 1 – 18 (this grade will be on the transcript)
  • Quarter 3 –  cumulative weeks for 19-28
  • Semester 2 –  cumulative for weeks 19 – 36 (this grade will be on the transcript)
