The grading policy described below has been adopted by Belmont Preparatory High School and it is to be used to calculate a student’s grade in all courses. All grade books must reflect this policy. Belmont Preparatory High School uses the Department of Education Gradebook Application, “Grades, Attendance, Messaging” or GAMA. The information from the gradebook application will be available to families in the NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) Portal and in Google Classroom.
Teachers will assign all tasks, assignments and assessments in Google Classroom. Students are responsible for turning in all assignments and assessments in Google Classroom using the TURN-IN function. Teachers will grade all TURNED-IN assignments in google classroom.
Assessments and assignments missed due to excused absences or hardship caused by the pandemic or difficulties with remote learning, can be made up. Teachers will provide students with the time and support needed to make up for missed work. Teachers must record and share an improvement plan for each student at risk of failing a course, two weeks prior to the end of each marking period. The plan must clearly list the tasks, assignments and assessments needed for the student to achieve a passing grade based on gradebook weights and averages.
Each semester is divided into three marking periods, during each Marking Period students will receive 12 formative activities/assessments, 4 summative activities/assessment. All activities/assessments must be given a due date when assigned. In addition to Marking Period Grades, Interim Progress Reports will be provided for Marking Periods 2 and 3.
Teachers are available for tutoring in all subjects from 2:00 - 3:00 PM every day of the week. The Grading Policy is found in the Student Handbook.
