Parent/Student Guidelines for
Student Engagement Day for Monday,
February 18th (President’s Day):
work (Elementary students) must be completed on the Student Engagement Day and turned in by the class time of the next day.
District Grading Scale Clairification
Clarification is necessary in regards to the change in grading scale. Per the 2018-2019 Junior/Senior High Student Handbook, page 41, the grading scale is now a 10 point scale and includes + and – marks. Further clarification was necessary and approved at the November board meeting.
Grading Scale and Quality Points (used to calculate the GPA):
The grading system (6 – 12) is based on a 4-point scale. Letter grades will be recorded with + or – (plus or minus) marks on the report card, but will be converted to the numeric value for the purpose of calculating the grade-point average, honor roll, and class ranking. INCOMPLETES must be made up within five days of the end of the grading period or the grade shall be recorded as “F” and no credit will be issued. Appeals to the principal for time extensions may result in no more than an additional five days for a total of ten days.
District-Wide Early Dismissal Every 2nd & 4th Wednesday of the School Year
Beginning August of 2018, the Donovan Community Unit School District will dismiss students every 2nd & 4th Wednesday of the month to allow all staff time for district trainings, staff meetings and professional development.
The Elementary school will dismiss at 1:22 and the Jr/Sr high school will dismiss at 1:30 on these days.
Please download the 2018-2019 Donovan School District Calender to view all scheduled early dismissals dates.
