The Brecksville-Broadview Heights City Schools believe grades should reflect and communicate to students, parents, teachers, postsecondary schools, and employers the level of student achievement of district learning targets. These grading guidelines serve to create an accurate, meaningful, and consistent grading process that communicates and supports individual student learning and helps students evaluate their own learning and set personal goals.
Evidence of Learning:
Unit tests, chapter tests, projects, essays, and research projects provide evidence of learning and will be weighted 80% of the total grade. Homework, in-class practice, some quizzes, and laboratory experiments will comprise 20% of a student’s grade.
Assignments are expected to be completed on time. Make-up assignments and assessments will not be accepted during the last week of a quarter.
Group grades will not be used because they are not reflective of what each student knows. Collaboration is encouraged, however, each student’s grade should measure his/her individual understanding and knowledge.
Extra credit assignments can distort student’s grades, do not provide evidence of learning, and will not be offered.

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company ... A church ... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past ... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude ... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you ... we are in charge of our Attitude." - Chuck Swindoll
The students are off to a great start!!!
