Grading for learning
At De Pere High School, a grade represents a clear and accurate summary of a student’s current academic achievement – what a student knows and can demonstrate – in accordance with curriculum standards. De Pere High School’s achievement standards are based on the Wisconsin State Standards and the Common Core State Standards.
We have a responsibility to provide all students in our district with the same rigorous curriculum. Teachers use grading to identify the strengths and weaknesses of students. This information is used by teachers to plan high quality, meaningful instruction for all students. Students use information from grading feedback to reflect on, evaluate their progress, and to set goals. We expect that all students in our district will grow and improve toward proficiency in the standards.
