As we approach the 2022-23 school year, we want to ensure that our EPSD9 community is aware of the significant change we have made to the grading system for students in grades 5 through 12. The primary purpose of grading is to effectively communicate student achievement toward specific standards at a certain point in time. A grade should reflect what a student knows and is able to do.
We have been working on this all summer to prepare staff for this change and we know it will benefit our students and families as it is more clearly defined. If you have questions, please contact your student’s school.
