Dear David A. Boody Community,

 

            The 2020-2021 school year is most likely going to be a very different year than anyone in our school community has experienced before.  In light of this, the city and Boody have updated our grading policy to reflect the difficulties everyone is facing with blended and remote learning.  I am writing to you today to explain this new policy, how it affects things at Boody and to explain your child’s report card. Reports cards are available as of Parent Teacher Conference day on your child’s NYC Schools Account. If you have any questions about your child’s grade please contact their grade level Assistant Principal.

 

Grades are a way to communicate about progress with students and families, and teachers must continue to assess student work and provide meaningful feedback about what students are learning. Grades must be as clear and accurate as possible while also taking into consideration the varied circumstances that students and schools are facing. First and foremost, we must support students to advance in their learning through June and beyond. This grading policy allows for several flexibilities:

  • Student access to devices
  • Expectations for due dates and submission of late work
  • Schools have flexibility in determining the factors that contribute to grades but attendance may not count towards grades.
  • The way in which assignments are scored

 

As always, your child will receive a grade on their report card that will take into account the above flexibilities and the work that they have done during that marking period.  Most students will receive a numerical grade between 65 and 100 or a P (pass) for a minor class. Some may receive a code for one or more classes.

 

Code

Only students in grade 8 are required to reconcile a final grade of ‘NX’ in a core course by August 2021 in alignment with promotion policies. Core courses are ELA, Math, Science and Social Studies.

 

Regards,

Dominick D’Angelo, Principal
