HISD Adopts New Grading Policy for Remainder of School Year

Written by Staff

HISD’s new grading policy states:

  • No district grades taken after March 12, 2020 can negatively impact a student’s overall average for the course. 
  • If a student’s grade in the final grading cycle negatively impacts their overall final grade in a course, that final cycle grade will be omitted in the calculation of the final grade for the course.
  • Individual schools have discretion for class assignments and grading, but they have been asked to be flexible and understanding of the burdens and limitations that COVID-19 has placed on students and families.
