Grading Information

Dear South Brunswick Families,

Below you will find a link to a student grading document for your child's grade level. Our remote grading practices assume we will be out of school for the duration. However, should we learn that the return date is much sooner, we may re-evaluate. As such, these grading practices are based on our current remote learning reality.

With the issues surrounding reliability, fidelity and equity too great to overcome, these grading models allow for flexibility and an ease away from the “grade” and hopefully reduced stress for all. Teachers will make sure their students fully understand the expectations as we go into the final reporting period of the year. A great deal of effort and thought has been put into designing the most meaningful approach to grading as we all find ourselves isolated, uncertain and learning in a platform that is like nothing we have done before. Traditional grades will not be the dominating factor as we all settle into our new normal, to which there is no known end-date.

Please note that student placement discussions are ongoing and more information will be forthcoming in the coming weeks. Teachers do not have answers regarding placement, so please hold questions at this time. More information will be shared in the coming weeks.

If you do have questions regarding grading, please reach out to your building principal or feel free to email me directly.

Thank you.
