• Gifted Education Grading Policy


    The elementary gifted resource program is an academic program.  The curriculum both extends and enriches the standards of the general education curriculum.  Each GT student will receive a numeric grade on his/her regular school report card.  Students who have less than an 80 average at the end of a marking period in GT, or an area in which they are served for GT,  will be placed on probation in accordance with the probation policy.  Parents will have access to student GT grades through the Parent Portal.  Student grades from their regular classroom subjects are monitored by Mrs. McGee. 

    A positive grading policy will be utilized in our GT classroom.  This will help motivate students to take seriously the work in the GT program and allow them to be willing to attempt challenging assignments.  GT grades will be a fair reflection of student performance in class.


    Assignment Types


    Class Work-  daily assignments which may include daily problem solving, individual unit assignments, logic reasoning assignments, current event assignments, PETS curriculum, chess reviews, foreign language assignments, etc. 

    Projects- Students will have various projects to complete during the year in GT.  They are also required to complete the contracts given each marking period by their regular classroom teachers.  Major projects can count as much as three grades during the nine weeks.  An incomplete project would result in an unsatisfactory grade.


    Participation- class discussions, group work, engineering challenges, etc.  Participation will count as a grade; therefore, it is very important that the student contributes to the class discussions, and carries his/her fair share of the load in group work.  
    Missed GT Class- When a student is absent from GT, he/she will need to check for assignments in the GT Google Classroom and complete them in a timely manner. 

    Continuation in the Gifted Program

    Students must maintain at least an average of 80 in all subjects in which they are served through gifted education.  This could be ELA/Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies, and/or GT classes, depending on the areas in which the student has qualified. If a student does not maintain an 80 average in any of these areas, he/she will be put on probation for a marking period.  If the average is not brought up to at least an 80 for the next marking period, the student will no longer be eligible to receive gifted services.
