Grading Policy

ACCE is committed to maintaining rigorous performance and achievement standards for all students and to providing a fair process for evaluating and reporting student progress that is understandable to students and their parents/guardians and relevant for instructional purposes. Students grades are a reflection of mastery of content and effort. While specific procedures for grades may differ in each class, these are the general guidelines for grading at ACCE.

Students receive a letter and numeric grade for each course.  This grade is an average of the marks received during the quarter.  A semester course grade is a combination of quarterly grades (80%) and a final exam (20%).

 For each year-long course, final grades are derived by averaging the two semester grades (80%) and the final exam (20%).  When courses last only half of the school year (Sept.-Jan., or Feb.-June) the credit for these courses is earned and assigned on the February and June report cards.  In other words, students pass or fail courses for the year in February as well as June.

 Students will be recognized and celebrated for high academic achievement.  Collectively, we will develop an assessment philosophy, belief statement, and honor roll criteria.
