LCS Shares eLearning Grading Guidelines
LCS Shares eLearning Grading Guidelines
District News
Wednesday, May 20, 2020

eLearning has created an opportunity for administration and teaching staff to create innovative opportunities for students to learn content and skills from home. LCS staff has developed a blended approach that keeps learning at a focus with the understanding of a new reality from working and learning from home. Distance learning has challenged the way of traditional grading where many learning opportunities cannot be graded under a traditional model. The district began assigning eLearning assignments on Wednesday, March 25th. To support students in the transition to eLearning, any grades assigned between March 25th and April 3rd will be assigned a Pass (100%) or the grade will be exempted. This means grades assigned during this two-week transition can only help a student’s grade. Beginning April 6, grades have been assigned with current district grading practices. Our goal is to continue to provide students and families with meaningful feedback in the areas of learning grade-level content and skills as well as student engagement.
