    GRADING SYSTEM

    The Utica City School District has adopted a numerical grading system.

    Based on S-28, students may also retake exams when they score 70% or less.  To qualify for S-28 students must attend one tutoring session with the teacher before they can make up the exam with the teacher.

    Students’ report card grades will be based on the following formula in all classes:

    50% Assessments                   (Tests, quizzes, common assessments)

    30% Projects/Writing               (Should be based on a rubric provided to students ahead of time)

    20% Classwork/Homework      (Students complete work in class and assigned homework)
