In this week’s message we are focusing solely on Term 4 grading. We are missing you and are working on a very special message to send out next week.
OMS would like to update you on the new grading policy for 4th term.
Due to Continuity of Learning, FCPS has adjusted grading categories for Term 4 in all courses. Teachers will use one category in their gradebook called, “Term 4- Continuity of Learning.” This category may show a percentage other than 100% on the Grade screen. However, it will actually count 100% for Term 4 in all courses since no other categories will be used. Even with this change, the grade that appears in Schoology will be accurate.
OMS teachers believe that it’s not about the grade as much as it is about the learning. We want you to continue learning in all classes during this time. You are capable of doing a lot! Don’t miss out on this opportunity to improve your ability in your classes.
Please contact us with any questions or concerns. We are here for you and want to help you do your best.
