345.1 Grading System
345.1 Grading System







The District will evaluate student achievement in all classes in order to promote a process of continuous evaluation of student performance, to inform the student, his/her parents/guardians, and provide a basis for bringing about change in student performance, if such change seems necessary.


The District recognizes that grades should reflect:


  1. Individual achievement;
  2. Differences in student ability;
  3. Realistic expectations based upon student ability; and
  4. Flexibility in accommodating individual differences. Procedures are outlined in Baraboo School Board Policy 345.1-Rule.


Special education students who are included in general education courses shall be evaluated along with all other students in accordance with the regular grading policy unless their Individual Education Plan (IEP) indicates otherwise.


The District shall not discriminate in the methods, practices and materials used for evaluating students on the basis of sex, age, race, religion, national origin, color, ancestry, creed, pregnancy, marital or parental status, sexual orientation, physical, mental, emotional or learning disability or handicap.  This does not, however, prohibit the use of special testing or counseling materials or techniques to meet the individualized needs of students.  Discrimination complaints shall be processed in accordance with established procedures.
