Grades Through the End of the Semester

MMSD Key Beliefs about Grading

  • Grades reflect daily teaching and learning
  • Grades are a communication and feedback tool for students and families
  • Grades must be consistent, accurate, and transparent reflections of our students’ progress towards mastery of standards and skills 
  • Grading practices should support our district vision that learning is a process; effective grading includes providing multiple opportunities for our students to learn and demonstrate their knowledge while building a growth mindset.


As we come to the end of the semester, teachers are currently working on entering final semester grades for students. These grades will be finalized by the end of the day on January 28th and should be posted on student transcripts by February 1st.. Here is the revised grading scale for teachers to use during the 2021-22 school year.
