Grading/Grades During School Closure

At the April 2020 meeting, the MISD Board of Trustees approved a resolution regarding Policy EIC-Class Rank/GPA for all current high school students.  The purpose of this resolution is to provide equity and fairness in regard to transcripting grades, class rank, and GPA during the current school closure.

For high school students, report card grades for the 5th six weeks and 6th six weeks will be shown with a symbol and a note in the comment section that indicates distance learning grades will not be transcripted toward GPA as determined by the recently passed resolution.

Implications for High School Students:

  • Students must participate and complete assignments through distance learning for the remainder of the school year.  This is how the Texas Education Agency (TEA) will monitor for continuity of instruction. 
  • No six weeks tests or semester exams will be administered for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester.
  • GPA/transcripted grades for current high school students will be based on grades taken prior to school closure ending with the 4th six weeks.
  • If a student is enrolled in a dual credit/dual enrollment college course, the higher education entity determines the grading policy for those courses.  In these courses, the syllabus was given to students at the beginning of the semester.  The grading policy for the course was detailed in the course syllabus. To receive high school and college credit a passing grade must be achieved.


Implications for Elementary and Middle School Students:   

  • Students must participate and complete assignments through distance learning for the remainder of the school year.  This is how the Texas Education Agency (TEA) will monitor for continuity of instruction. 
  • No six weeks tests or semester exams will be administered for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester.
  • All distance learning grades will be counted as daily grades for the 5th & 6th six weeks.
  • Citizenship and Study/Work Habits grades will not be issued for the last two six weeks.
