TIS Reopening Handbook
The 2020-2021 academic school year will require all of us – TIS staff, community, parents, students and teachers – to be flexible and understanding.

In QSI the following grades are used on a status report (these grade definitions are written at the bottom of every status report):
• A = All essential parts of the outcome were mastered at an appropriately high level. The student consistently demonstrated noteworthy achievement of a high quality, particularly in the higher order thinking or performance skills.
Consistency Gets the A! A-level students should demonstrate consistency of work across a unit in order to be considered for the A. In order for teachers to evaluate students’ knowledge consistently, a teacher may consider the following criteria when assigning an A (including the A-level assessment or project):
• school attendance
• completion of classwork/homework
• class/group participation
Remember that an A is given for consistently demonstrating (in class and through assignments) noteworthy achievement of a high quality, particularly in the higher-order thinking or performance skills.
• B = All essential parts of the outcome were mastered at an appropriately high level in which the student successfully engaged in higher order thinking or performance skills.
• P = The student is “In progress” in the outcome (normal status).
A P is a normal grade for students who are learning the material. Normal pacing means that there is not more than one P in any one class. (In some classes, some units are open all year long; this is then considered normal.) The appearance of two Ps can be an indication that a student is falling behind and may need to be placed on a remediation plan.
• H = This outcome is “on hold” for a legitimate reason. (The student has begun the outcome but is not currently pursuing it.)
An H is given to a student who needs more time and more skills to finish a unit. H means that the student cannot pursue this unit any longer, as it interferes with finishing current units. A student can be removed from H status in a unit if he is up to date on all classes. To be up to date on current units in all classes, there can be no more than one “P” opened a time in any one class. A student will make up any units in H in the summer time if they are not closed during the school year.
• D = The student has not made a reasonable effort and is therefore “deficient” in attaining mastery of the outcome.
A student can be removed from D status in a unit if she is up to date on current units and if it has been determined that she has returned to an acceptable work pattern. To be up to date on current units in the class, there can be no more than one P opened a time in any one class. A student will make up any units in D in the summer time if they are not closed during the school year.
• W = The student has withdrawn from this outcome.
