  22. MJHS uses letter grades (A, B, C, D, F, P) to report student progress. Plus/minus may be added to the letter grade as an incentive/warning. The plus/minus will appear on the student’s record, but will have no quality point value when computing the GPA. • Grades reflect the level of mastery on course specific curriculum standards. To calculate the Grade Point Average (GPA) add up all of the quality points for the courses taken and divide by the total number of credits that have been earned. Q1(42.5%) + Q2(42.5) + Sem. Ex (15%) = S1 S1(50%)+S2(50%)=Final Grade Q3(42.5%) + Q4(42.5%) + TCAP or Course Exam (15%) = S2 Grading Practices

  23. 1st Semester Exams will compose (15%) eighth grade and (25%) ninth grade of the first semester average • As per the State of Tennessee and School Board Policy, the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) will compose 15% of the second semester average in the subject areas of mathematics, reading/language arts, science, and social studies for Maryville City Schools students in grades three through eight. • As per the State of Tennessee, state issued End-of-Course (EOC) exams will compose 25% of the second semester average in the subject areas of English 1, Algebra 1, and Biology. • Courses without State mandated assessments may issue course generated EOC exams that will compose (15%) eighth grade and (25%) ninth grade of the second semester average. • Course specific benchmark assessments will be given to assess student academic growth over the course of the school year. Required Assessments

  24. According to School Board Policy-to receive credit for passing any grade or course students must attend 90% of class time. (Miss more than 10 minutes of a class period-counted absent for the entire class period.) • Decreased flexibility regarding Prior Approvals for both 8th and 9th grades. • MJHS attendance policy requires students with excessive absences to complete time-for-time. School Attendance

  25. There is no perfect formula for determining the proper amount of academic study for each student. It is not unreasonable to expect a student to routinely have academic study each night and some weekends. • When completing projects, papers, and/or preparing for examinations; the amount of academic study may become significant. • The time required for completion of academic study will vary with student ability, class schedule, and proper budgeting of time. • Students can expect to spend two hours each night of the five (5) day school week and on some weekends completing academic study. • Students enrolled in honors and advanced placement (AP) classes may experience an increase in academic study. • Due dates for academic work and deadlines for the issuance of partial credit for late work will be determined by the individual teacher, department, and/or instructional team.

  39. The Master Schedule is made on the basis of student course recommendations and requests received during annual registration. • Normally, scheduling all student course requests is possible. Should unavoidable conflicts arise, students will be given an alternative request. • Schedules will be adjusted within the first ten (10) days of the fall semester for students who are misplaced in a course. A schedule change request form will be available in the school counseling office and online. • Changes in level can only take place prior to the end of the first quarter (1st 9 weeks) of the term through a collaborative process to include the student, parent, and teacher. • After that time, level changes will only take place through a collaborative process with administrative approval following a student/parent/teacher/school counselor conference.
