Independent PE

Independent Physical Education (IPE) is an option for students in grades 6-10 who compete in an individual sport to an exceptional degree of competition.  The student must be a nationally ranked athlete or equivalent, performing or competing at a nationally recognized level (see Sports Qualification).  Team sport participation does not qualify for Independent Physical Education.   For more information please see the CUSD website under Athletics-Independent Physical Education

Progress Reports vs. Quarter Grade Reports



Progress reports are issued to any student receiving a "D" or "F" academic grade or an Unsatisfactory" in Citizenship or Work Habits.  

Teachers may send a "C" progress report for a student for whom this indicates a problem (at risk of dropping to a "D", or normally an "A" or "B" student who has dropped to a "C").

Progress Report information is maintained on the school data base but is NOT included on the student's transcript.


Quarter Grades

Quarter grades are the final grade for the quarter and are included on the student's transcript.
