Secondary Grading in the 3rd and 4th Marking Periods and Awarding High School Course Credit

An Informational Guide for Students & Parents/Guardians

The Monticello Central School District has taken careful consideration for the unique circumstances our students are in as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.  This 2019-2020 grading procedure reflects our effort to support the academic success of every student. 

Marking Period 3

Marking Period 3 ends April 21, 2020. Percentage grades will be given for the Marking Period 3 based on the following criteria:

  • The basis for Marking Period 3 grades will consist of assignments and assessments provided/administered prior to March 12, 2020.
  • Any extra credit or the retaking of assignments or assessments will be reflected in the third quarter grade by course.  Contact the teacher of that course with any questions.

Marking Period 4

The following criteria will be used to determine Marking Period 4 grades and awarding course credit:

  • Marking Period 4 assignments/assessments consist of new learning from April 8, 2020 forward.
  • Students will have an option of having their Marking Period 4 work assessed as Pass/Fail or with a percentage grade. Students have until the end of Marking Period 4 to make this determination and will be given the opportunity to notify the teacher of that course directly. Unless otherwise stated by the student, the default Marking Period 4 grade is a percentage.
  • If the Marking Period 4 grade would lower a student’s overall average, then the grade will be noted, but not used in the overall course average. If the grade would raise the student’s overall average, then it will be entered as the fourth quarter percentage grade and included in the overall course average. If a student elects to take the Pass/Fail option, the choice will be noted, but not used in the overall course average.
  • A student’s cumulative or final year grade, per course, will be the average of the first three quarters/marking periods, or all four quarters/marking periods, whichever is higher.

*The above guidance does not apply to College in the Classroom courses.

All Non- College Courses:

Pass/Fail Option is for the 4th quarter ONLY. Your final grade in a full year course is determined one of two ways. 1) Average of marking periods 1-3 or 2) Average of all four marking periods. Your final grade in a semester course is determined by either 1) using the 3rd marking period average only or 2) averaging the 3rd and 4th marking period together.  Teachers will do whichever is in the best interest of the student. If you didn’t have a passing average after marking periods 1-3 for a full-year course or marking period 3 for a semester course then you NEED to be completing 4th quarter work to pass the course.

SCCC College Courses:

You have an option of a letter grade for the course or a pass/fail for the course. Please consider the following when making this decision. A pass/fail (60 average or higher is needed to “pass” the course. If you choose pass/fail and you plan on attending a SUNY school then you will get transferable credit. If you are planning to attend any other school then it is your responsibility to check with that school in advance to see if you would get transferable credit. Your SCCC teachers will be sending out a survey around May 20th- you must choose the pass/fail option on that survey. If you do nothing or you do not respond to the survey then you will receive a letter grade for the course. Once grades (ether letter grade or pass/fail grade) are entered at the end of the school year in June this can not be undone. 

SUPA College Courses: Pass/Fail Option Deadline – MAY 8, 2020 

You have an option of a letter grade for the course or a pass/fail for the course. Please consider the following when making this decision. A pass/fail (65 average or higher is needed to “pass” the course. It is your responsibility to check with that school you are considering attending  in advance to see if you would get transferable credit. Additionally, your SUPA teachers have no part in your decision, nor do they even know if you have chosen pass/fail. It is your responsibility to use the link below, weigh the pro’s and con’s and follow the directions if you are choosing the pass/fail option. If you do nothing then you will receive a letter grade for the course. Once grades are entered in June this can not be undone.

2020 Regents/Graduation Requirements

An Informational Guide for Students and Parents

All June Regents exams are cancelled for the 2020 school year.

If you were scheduled to take a Regents exam in June, you are exempt from the exam. That means that you don’t have to take it and you will never have to take it as long as you pass the course in June of 2020 or August of 2020. This applies to the following:

  •  If you are taking a course that ends in a Regents, you don’t take the Regents and your course grade is the average of your marking periods
  • If you are in an AIS for a Regents that you previously failed, you don’t take the Regents (not in June, not ever) you are waived from having to pass it now and in the future
  • If you are not in an AIS but are scheduled to retake a Regents exam to satisfy a graduation requirement, you are exempt and you do not have to take the Regents exam (not in June, not ever)

If you fail a course that ends in a Regents exam in June, but attend summer school and pass the course, you WILL NOT have to take the Regents in August. Keep in mind that at this point we do not know what summer school will look like; whether it will be a traditional classroom experience or online learning.

If you fail a course that ends in a Regents exam in June and do not complete the course in summer school, you will have to meet course requirements in the future. That means…WORK HARD NOW AND PASS YOUR CLASSES THIS YEAR!!!!!

Intro to Naviance for MHS students

MHS students may pick up personal belongings left in lockers beginning May 19

Beginning Tuesday, May 19, Monticello High School students can retrieve any items left behind in their hallway and gym lockers when the building closed on March 12. 

Students may pick up their locker items from Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the front entrance of the high school building. To request your items, ring the bell and give the safety staff your name, locker number and whether you have a gym or hallway locker. Safety staff will then retrieve your items, which have already been bagged and labeled, and bring the bags to the vestibule. You will then sign for your items. If safety staff is not at the desk when you arrive, please wait until they return. 

All items must be retrieved by June 5.
