Standards-based grading (SBG) is a system of assessing students’ progress toward learning specific standards set for each grade level and course. It is not just a new way of grading but also a set of teacher practices that promote learning.
It is based in a growth mindset, the understanding that our skills and knowledge develop through effort and persistence.
Students are graded on the same standards across the district. This means that regardless of which teacher a student has or what school they attend, they will focus on learning the same content and skills.
Updated Secondary Report Cards were created using feedback for pilot schools: Pacific Middle School, Evergreen High School and Puget Sound High School.
