Central Islip School District Report Card Grading



Dear Parents/Guardians,

The Central Islip School District is proud to be part of a community that strives to balance distant learning, so all students continue to learn during this unique time. Our teachers and administrators continue to work hard for our students; our parents continue to assist in the success of their children in extraordinary ways, and our students have been exceptional in their ability to adjust and remain positive and resilient.

The purpose of this letter is to provide information regarding the district grading process for your child's 2019-20 end of the school year marking period, should schools close beyond May 15th, 2020. If schools reopen after May 15th, 2020, discussions with staff members to determine the procedures for your child's grade will begin upon returning to the building. The following is the breakdown for our Elementary and Secondary schools.

Elementary

Elementary report cards will be distributed at the end of this academic school year. Student grades for the second-trimester have been recorded in PowerSchool. We will not be issuing grades to the students for the third trimester. However, written comments reflecting the academic progress of your child from March 13th to the end of the school year will be included in the comment section of the report card that will be sent home at the end of the school year. If you have any questions, please email the building principal.

Reed Middle School Grades

Grades 7 and 8 report cards will not be mailed. You can view your child's grade through the parent portal. If you need support using the parent portal, please email Mr. Matera, the building principal, or call the Reed Guidance Department on Mondays or Wednesdays at 631-348-5066 ext. 3020, 3021.

The 3rd quarter grading policy is as follows:

·   If a student was passing a class as of March 13th, they are to receive a numerical passing grade even if they have not been able to complete any online work or work packets since March 13th.

·    If a student was passing a class as of March 13th and they have done online work or a work packet, then their grade can only be enhanced.

·     If a student was failing a class as of March 13th and they have not done any work, they do not get a failing grade and are eligible for an Incomplete.

·   Students who receive an incomplete for a class for the 3rd marking period have an opportunity to improve their grades through online work or work packet.  

 

 

 

High School Grades and Report Cards
