EHS Grading Policy


Grading Guidelines 2018-2019

Grades issued to EHS students must reflect mastery of
assignments, tests, projects, classroom activities,and other
instructional activities. 

The student’s performance indicates the level of mastery of the
standard and / or TEKS objective. 

No grade shall be given as a reflection of, or given due
to disciplinary action.
Teachers shall record a minimum of 19 grades each nine weeks.  
There should be at least 15 daily grades and 4 assessments for 19 total.  The daily
grades shall count as 50% and the assessments count as 50% of the grade:


Assignments/Daily Work

Examples: Bell Work, Short answer, Class Participation and Practice problems




Formative Assessments



Summative Assessments

Examples: Short Answer, Quizzes, Small Projects, and Exit Tickets


Examples: Unit Tests, Nine Weeks Tests, Semester Tests, Large Projects








  • Grade Weighted classes shall have assessments count as 60% of the grade
  • and daily work count as 40%
  • At the end of a semester, teachers will give a Semester Test.  It is up to the teacher whether that test is a unit test or a comprehensive test covering everything from the semester.  Following the long standing EHS practice, the semester test will be counted as 20% of the semester grade. The Semester Grade will be calculated: first nine weeks 40%, second nine weeks 40%, and the semester test 20%.


    • FALL SEMESTER: EHS does not have test exemptions for the fall semester so no student will be exempt from the test given by the instructor at the end of the first semester.
    • SPRING SEMESTER: To be exempt from taking semester tests given on May 21-24, 2018, the student must:
      • have an average of at least 85%,  
      • have no major discipline issues,
      • have no significant attendance issues in the spring semester. 
    • NOTES ON ATTENDANCE: In the event of a question about attendance issues, the EHS Attendance Committee will determine if the student qualifies for the test exemption.  An absence is not excused if the excuse note is not turned in within three days of the absence.  More than two unexcused absences can disqualify a student from receiving the test exemption.
    • STUDENTS WHO EARN THE TEST EXEMPTION will be required to attend school on test days.  Reward activities will be planned for those students. 


  • The district shall permit a student who meets the criteria detailed in the grading guidelines a reasonable opportunity to retake a test for which the student received a failing grade. (EIA LOCAL)


  • If the student meets the criteria to retake a failed test, he/she will have a maximum of three days to retake the test for a grade not to exceed a 70.  It could be less than three days to retake the test if the situation falls in the last week of the grading period because teachers have deadlines to submit grades.


  • Students shall be permitted an opportunity to turn in Late Daily Work for a grade deduction as indicated:
    • 1 day late thirty points (that is, 70 will be the highest possible grade)
    • 2 days late fifty points (50 will be the highest possible grade)
    • More than 2 days late. No work will be accepted more than 2 days late. Such work will receive a grade of zero.    


  • Teachers will contact parents at any point during the nine weeks when a student’sgrade falls below 60%

  • Students who engage in academic dishonesty shall be subject to grade penalties on assignments or tests. If the grade penalty causes the student to fail the subject for the nine weeks period or semester, it is at the teacher’s discretion to offer the student an opportunity to complete an alternative assignment or test to raise the student’s course average to passing (70%).


  • An average of 70% or higher of the learning objectives shall be considered a passing grade for credit accrual.  A student’s grade classification is based upon the number of credits earned, freshman (0-5.5), sophomore (6-11.5), junior (12-17.5), and senior (18 or more).


  • Any student who does not pass a portion of the STAAR EOC test will be required to attend remediation tutorials/classes, including summer review and retesting.


  • Three Week, Six Week, and Nine Week progress reports will be issued along with notice for a teacher/parent conference if necessary.


Campus grading guidelines will be clearly communicated to students and parents at the beginning of each semester through email, letters home, parent meetings, teacher webpages, and student class meetings.

Ms. Bell's Grading Extras

Below are a few classroom policies.

When a student is absent and
homework is graded, I WILL
 put an A in the grade book.
This A is an indicator that an
assignment needs to be made up.
It DOES NOT average in with
 the other grades.  This A will be
replaced with the student's grade
when the work is completed. 

If the student has returned to
school and has not completed the
work in the allotted time, I will
replace the A with an M.  An M
DOES average in as a 0.  After 3
days, the M will become a
Permanent 0.

Students who do not have
completed at the beginning of
class will receive the appropriate
percentage off according to the
Student Handbook.

When work is due, the student
will put it in the tray on my desk
on my desk.  After graded, it will
be returned.  All homework, reviews,
and tests will be kept in the
student's binder.  There will be a
binder test grade for each grading

Be sure to keep ALL of your
 graded papers!

In every class we do a "Bellringer"
to start the period.  Students work
independently for 5 minutes, then
we go over it together.  At the end
 of each week, the bellringer will
be counted as a daily grade.  

Math Riddle

Three prime numbers add up 
to 100. Of the three numbers, 
one of them is more than 
a third but less than a half 
of another. Find the three 

Classroom Rules

R    Regularly come to class and be on time.
E    Expect to learn, It's your education.
S    Stay on task while working with the group.
P    Positive attitudes are a must!!
E    Cell phones must be silenced & put away in the calculator holder.
C    Chewing gum, candy or any other snacks is not allowed in class.
T    Trust yourself.  If you think you can, you can.

Bottom Line .............
RESPECTING yourself, others, and the classroom will create a
positive learning environment for everyone!

Current Geometry Objectives

Algebraic Reasoning Objectives
       Algebraic Reasoning -


You can go to Yahoo or Google and type in interactive
activities for ___________________(such as linear
equations, y=mx+b, segment addition postulate,
theorems, etc ) and it will bring you many sites that
have fun learning activities.    

These are a few that I know of....   (You can get a free one month trial on this.  Then there is a fee)  (The best!)
Type in the subject you are looking for and you will get videos and practice problems!

At the end of the day, who you are is "toadally" and completely up to you!
Riddle Answer

Since the three primes add
up to 100, one of them must
be even. The only even prime
is 2. Therefore the other two
primes must add upto 98. By
trial and error, these can
be determined to be 31 and 67.
So the three primes are 2, 31,
and 67.

Cell Phones & Head Phones

Technology is growing and is an inevitable
part of our society.  You will be allowed
to use your cellphone in the classroom
for instructional purposes ONLY. 

When you come into the room, you are
to make sure your Device is on silent and
placed in the calculator holder and pick
up your calculator.

You will be allowed to use your phone in
the hallways and at lunch to text and
surf the internet.  You may NOT access
any social media (i.e. Facebook, Instagram,
Snapchat, etc.).


Headphones can be worn in the classroom,
if and only if

1. You are working independently on an     

2. You have a play list on your phone that
        does not require you to pick up the phone.

Headphones are NOT to be worn in the hallway.  

Failure to follow any of these guidelines will result
in the phone/headphones being taken to the office.
