Beginning April 13, Magnolia ISD students will be graded on remote learning assignments, according to MISD information released April 9. The district released grading guidelines in effect during the remote learning period as well as a breakdown of the standards a student must meet to advance to the next grade level.
MISD facilities are currently closed until May 4 to comply with county and state restrictions regarding the coronavirus, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.
Both final exams and State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness have been canceled for MISD students, according to district information.
"Because the school closure has been extended until May 4, Magnolia ISD will need to assess student work to award credit and promotion to the next grade level," officials said in an April 9 release.
Grading guidelines for the fourth nine-week period of classes include:
- Parents of students in grades pre-K through first will receive a phone conference progress report at the end of the nine weeks. Student progress will center around reading, writing and mathematics.
- Students in grades 2-12 will receive three grades for designated subjects, which vary by grade level. Teachers will assign a final pass, fail or incomplete grade at the end of the nine weeks.
- Students in grades 2-12 receiving three grades will receive one grade each for three time periods: April 13-24, April 27-May 8 and May 11-May 20.
To determine whether students will move onto the next grade level, proficiency standards vary by grade level. For example, students in grades kindergarten and first must be proficient in reading, language arts and math skills. Grade-level advancement for high school students will be determined by course credits, which will be determined by grouping the final nine weeks pass/fail grade with the third nine weeks, according to MISD.
