Beverly Hills Intermediate Grading Policy

Philosophy of Grading:

• All grading practices should be used to promote learning, achievement and academic growth, in a climate of encouragement and high expectations.

• All learning experiences, written assignments, and assessments should be designed to provide challenge, growth, feedback for improvement, and opportunities to correct mistakes.

• Clear and timely communication with parents regarding student progress is essential at BHI. There should be no report card surprises.

• Grades should be seen as a tool to foster academic growth, not a means of punishment. BHI has school-wide intervention plans in place to assist students who are not passing all subjects or classes at the earliest sign of need.

• Responsibility and organization skills should be taught at each grade level to help students be prepared to turn in quality, completed learning assignments.
