The Newark Public School recognizes that a system of grading student achievement will help students; teachers and parents/guardians assess progress toward educational goals. Student achievement is defined as competence in specific subject matter content. A grade represents the total student academic achievement in a given course. A minimum of nine grades is required in order to examine student progress over time.

Although student achievement should be the primarry factor on which grades are based, it is apropriate to provide feedback to students on their effort, behavior, and attendance.
