Grades are given on Common Formative Assessments, Quizzes, Tests, (Semester Exams) Projects, Research Papers and Notebooks. Your child's teacher should be giving at least two grades per week starting in the 1st nine week grading period.

Grades are not given on items to be considered student practice.

Grades should be a reflection of what degree the student has mastered a National Common Core Standard over all semester grade should be a reflection of what a student’s score on the New Mexico Standards Based Assessment is projected to be.

Most practice work will be done in the classroom or Tiger Up Time, very little should end up at home however if a student doesn't take advantage of TuT or Class Time, then the expectation is that it should go home as work to be done at home. The idea behind this practice is to have a licensed teacher/administrator/peer tutor in the room while practice is being done in the event a student needs help. This year we are focusing on students meeting deadlines/due dates.

Tiger Up Time is designed to do these types of tasks:

  1. Give short curriculum progress assessments (CPA) to judge where our student's are in regards to specific common core standards.These assessments are very short and shouldn’t take longer 10-15 min.
  2. Students areto work on any practice assignments that are given to build targeted Math and Language Arts Skills.
  3. Students may be asked to makeup or redo classroom assessments, the campus target for assessments is 70% - 100% mastery.
  4. Students can receive peer or teacher tutorial help.
  5. Students may be sent to a teacher when they need help in a subject prior approval with pass required.

Advanced Class Requirements:

For a student to be eligible for advanced placement in core classes, the students must meet the following criteria:

  1.  3.5 GPA for the final grading period of the previous year
  2. A score in the highest 50% range of proficient or any score that is advanced in both math and reading


  1.  Completion of a parent contract with administration for approval
