YECA Grading Policy
Grades are a representation of a student’s overall progress towards meeting standards academically and personally. The components of a grade will reflect both mastery and non-mastery measures. As outlined below, mastery grades show a student’s academic performance, and non-mastery grades will represent exhibition of the YECA Core Values – Service, Perseverance, Advocacy, Reflection, and Collaboration (SPARC).
