    Overview of Grading Policy 

    At P.S. 29, we value above all else, the importance of a partnership with parents, that supports, and respects their aspirations for their children.  It is our collective responsibility to equip all students with skills that maximize their independence, and enable them to be successful.

    As a school, we have established a consistent method of evaluating student work.  P.S. 29 has defined benchmarks, and multiple measures that students must achieve in order to be successful, and meet grade level standards. Each measure, and its benchmark, represents the content, and skills students need to master, or show sufficient progress toward, in order to be successful in each grade. These grade-level benchmarks, established in September of each school-year will be communicated to students, and families to ensure a mutual understanding of what students need to accomplish throughout the year. This grading policy is designed to ensure that all students in a given grade are held to the same benchmarks at the end of each marking period.

     

    For grading purposes, there will be three marking periods for the 2018-2019 school year. Please read and review the grading policy with your child and sign the tear off below. 


     

    Promotion Policy

    In accordance with Chancellor’s Regulation A-501 and the NYCDOE Promotion Implementation Guide, PS 29 has defined benchmarks and multiple measures that students must achieve in order to be promoted to the next grade level. Each measure, and its benchmark, represents the content and skills students need to master, or show sufficient progress towards, in order to be ready for and successful in the next grade. These grade-level benchmarks, established in September of each school-year, will be communicated to students and families to ensure a mutual understanding of what students need to accomplish throughout the year, in order to be ready for the next grade level.  The Promotion Policy is designed to ensure that all students in a given grade are held to the same promotion benchmarks and enter the next grade with the same level of readiness.

     

    PS 29 Multiple Measures & Benchmarks For Promotion

     

    For promotion purposes, students must evidence mastery of content and readiness for the next grade, by performance at or above the levels indicated.  Multiple Measures have been established separate and apart from the “Course Mark” measure, however Multiple Measures also live inside the “Course Mark” measure.

    • Grades K-2: students must meet the “Course Mark” measure in ELA & Math; if not, then 2 of the 3 remaining measures must be met to be “recommended” for promotion
    • Grades 3-5: students must meet the “Course Mark” measure in ELA & Math; if not, then 3 of the 5 remaining measures must be met to be promoted
