    Grading Policy

    Tarrant Intermediate School students receive a Standard Based Report Card. Standard Based Report Cards are based on the College and Career Ready Standards.  Students are evaluated on mastery or non-mastery of individual standards.  Non-mastered standards are re-taught until students master the standards at their highest demonstrated ability at the end of the 9 weeks/year.

    Grades 3-6

    E = Excellence (above grade level) = 94-100% mastery
    S = Satisfactory (on grade level)= 80-93% mastery
    P = Progressing (partial mastery)= 70-79% mastery
    N = Needs improvement (non-mastery)= 69 and below% mastery

    Special Education Grading Standards - Students who are receiving special education services may be graded according to an individual educational plan.Teachers are encouraged to extend appropriate academic modifications or accommodations to students who may be eligible for such under provisions of state and federal law.
