5121 Examination and Grading or Rating




Through instructional performance objectives, the district shall establish student standards which promote educational achievement and excellence.

Issuance of regular student grades promotes continuous student evaluation and informs students, parents, and counselors of student progress and encourages improvement in student performance, if improvement is needed.

Students shall take Connecticut Standardized Tests provided by and administered under the supervision of the State Board of Education. Satisfactory achievement on the Standardized Tests shall be only one criterion for promotion or graduation.
