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.
