Grades - Secondary
At the secondary level (middle and high schools), Salem-Keizer’s schools report grades on the traditional A through F scale.
Parents of middle and high school students can expect to receive progress reports every six weeks. Final grades are sent home at the end of the semester (halfway through the school year – late January), and at the end of the school year (June).
Proficiency grading, as discussed under the elementary grading section, is starting to be implemented in secondary schools, however it will be some time before it is fully adopted.
Like in elementary schools, teachers in secondary schools consider progress toward year-end learning standards when determining grades, but they translate these proficiency scores into the traditional A through F scale.
To understand how teachers approach this at the secondary level, be sure to attend parent-teacher conferences and talk with your student’s teachers about standards and grading practices.
