Your learning is a joint effort between you and your teacher. This means you both have responsibilities that need to be met to ensure your success. Please note that AP and Dual Credit courses may be exempt from some of these practices due to College Board and/or college credit requirements.
At Sprague High School, we believe:
- Common grading practices make our classrooms equitable and give students consistent opportunities to succeed.
- Grades should accurately represent learning; grading practices should provide hope and increase student confidence.
- Standards based instruction is an effective system for promoting a growth mindset. It allows students to make mistakes, and it enables them to determine how and where improvement can take place.
- It is important to engage in learning and prepare to the best of your ability for all assessments. Learning is a process; opportunities for redos/retakes are available for all students who prepare.
- Student work should reflect where a student is at in the learning process and must be original work.
