* Note: Issuance of interim reports is not limited to published dates. Interim progress reports may be issued at any time and must be issued when a student is in danger of or is failing.

Prekindergarten, kindergarten & grades 1-2

Student performance in prekindergarten, kindergarten, first and second grade is reported to parents using the following ratings:

  • Consistently Demonstrating – indicates that the student is making appropriate progress towards mastery of the skill.

  • Developing – indicates that the student is making progress towards mastery of the skill, but at this time has partial understanding or inconsistent performance.

  • Needs Improvement – indicates that the student's progress is not satisfactory at this time.

Grades 3-5

Teachers evaluate the academic performance for each student four times a year using the following letter grades:

A = Excellent
B = Very good performance
C = Satisfactory performance
D = Minimal performance
E = Unsatisfactory performance

Middle & high school

In middle and high school, student semester and final grades are computed by averaging numerical grades. Quarterly grades are calculated by obtaining a quarterly arithmetic average. In order to prepare grades for report cards, this average is translated into a letter grade.

The grading scale is:

A = 90-100 % = Superior
B = 80-89 % = Above average
C = 70-79 % = Average
D = 60-69 % = Below average
F = 0-59 % = Failure

If a student receives a failing grade because of two or more unlawful absences, the numerical grade assigned to the student will be no higher than 59 percent. Teachers have some discretion and latitude within parameters in devising a grading system and assigning students’ grades; however, such a system should be consistent. Teachers give students a course description that includes information on how grades are calculated.

CCPS has a weighted grade system, giving students the opportunity to earn additional quality points for specified honors and advanced placement courses. The weighted grade point average is calculated and used to determine class rank and academic honors. (See the High School Program of Studies for additional information).
