Grading Policy During Virtual Learning

Students enrolled in remote instruction follow the same grading guidelines as in-person instruction. Teachers receive support and guidance on effective grading practices to ensure that grading guidelines are followed in both instructional models. At Lamar there are three grading categories – Preparation (25%), Formative Assessment (50%) and Summative Assessment (25%).


All daily assignments must be turned in on the day they are assigned.  Class time is set aside for independent work, and students should turn in assignments before the end of the class period, or no later than 11:59 p.m.  No late work can be accepted. 


Grades will be taken during each grading cycle of the 2020-2021 school year. All cycle grades will be used in the calculation of the final average for any class. Final exams will be administered for all high school credit courses.
