Standards-based grading is a grading practice within a broader standards-based instructional system where teachers collaborate together to understand what content students know and what they need to be able to do in order to meet or exceed state standards.
Beginning this school year, standards-based grading is being used in all elementary and middle schools across the Five Star District. Two high schools, Legacy High School and Mountain Range High School, are also in the early stages of implementation.
For the past four years, the district’s standards-based grading committee has been working with teachers, students, parents, school districts across the country, as well as colleges and universities, to carefully and thoughtfully develop and implement the new grading model.
