The Fullerton School District is committed to providing quality distance learning instruction, district resources, and social emotional support to students and families during school closure due to COVID-19. Based on state and local guidelines from the California Department of Education and Orange County Department of Education, we strongly believe in developing grading practices that ensure “no harm” to students as we transition to Distance Learning. At this time, the Fullerton School District will establish a “pass” grading system. A pass grading system means that all students TK-8th grade will receive a “pass” on their third trimester/fourth quarter grades. Through the lens of equity, teachers will continue to provide positive feedback to students on work performance, hold high expectations for student engagement, and follow up with families to provide support. School sites will continue to reach out to students and families through various communication methods such as phone calls, emails, apps, and learning management systems. The grading policy for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year was created by teachers, principals, district administration, and support staff. We continue to work together to provide students with care and compassion, especially during these uncertain times.
