High School Academics
Central Linn High School (CLHS) measures student academic growth using a proficiency model and grading system. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are important learning goals each student must attain. Students learn in different manners and at different rates. Therefore, CLHS will track students in their attainment of the CCSS and award credit for classes once the standards for that class have been met. CLHS will report to students and families a student’s progress using the following scale:
MA = Mastery of the standard; student can apply the standard at a high level
EX = Exceeded the minimum knowledge of the standard (higher than MS)
MS = Met the minimum knowledge of the standard and is proficient in the standards
NM = Nearly Meets; the student recognizes the student is close to meeting minimum proficiency on the standard. This score will not earn credit.
I = Incomplete. The student is still working or needs to begin work on the standard.
This scale is the same scale teachers will use to report student accomplishment on classes and credits. For report cards, the school and district recognize the need to provide a transition between CLHS and post-secondary institutions. Grades will be put on transcripts for the purposes of assisting post-secondary institutions understand student academic achievement.
