6018: Grades and Progress Reports

Each ESU 4 program will report student grades and/or academic progress to parents and to the student's resident school district at least four times per year. The administrator of each ESU 4 program shall develop and implement student grading guidelines to be used by teachers. The objective of grading guidelines shall be to quantify and report the academic achievement of each student or the student's progress toward his/her educational goals.

A student's academic grade shall not be reduced for disciplinary reasons. This policy shall not apply when a student's grade is reduced because of work the student missed because of an unexcused absence, during a period of suspension or dismissal imposed by the student's resident school district.
