Dear Families,

 

I hope this finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe.

 

Last week, the Mayor and Chancellor released a city-wide grading policy for all schools. Thank you for your patience as our Wagner community makes sense of and comes to an understanding about how this guidance looks in practice for our school. Please know that the administration and teacher leaders are working to implement these guidelines carefully and in the best interest of all Wagner students. Below are some updates.

 

Trimester 2 Report Cards:

We have good news! Trimester 2 Report Cards are now accessible to families. To view trimester 2 grades, log in to your PupilPath account, click "Grades" then click "Report Cards" on the left. In the center window be sure to select MP2. (If you need support accessing PupilPath, please e-mail Ms. Elias at j elias2@schools.nyc.gov). Finalized report cards will be available in your MySchools account early next week.

 

Trimester 3 Grades:

In accordance with the new NYCDOE grading guidance, for Trimester 3, students will receive a numerical grade from 60 - 100 for each class; a passing grade is 65 or higher.

 

Final Grades:

Under the new NYCDOE grading policy, the three Trimester grades will be combined to determine a final grade using the Department of Education’s new Final Grade scale:

2019 - 2020

Final Grade

Description (see note below for 8th grade Honors classes)

MT

Student work over the course of the year reflects students have met grade level standards

N

Student work over the course of the year reflects that students making progress towards grade level standards

NX

Student has not produced enough work during the year to calculate a final grade. We are still awaiting further guidance on the specifics of summer learning opportunities for students receiving NX.

We are waiting for further clarification from the NYCDOE on how our trimester numerical grades will translate to the final grades outlined above.

 

For 8th grade students in Regents level courses:

Grade 8 students taking Honors Math, Honors Science, and Honors Social Studies who fail the course will receive a grade of NX, in alignment with the grading policy for grades 9 - 12. Students who have failed these courses can not receive grades of MT or N, as they have not met the learning outcomes to receive high school course credit. Both

 

N and MT are considered passing grades for the purposes of conferring accelerated course credit for Honors courses. Please be reminded that Regents Exams will not be given this year.

 

High School Admissions for current 7th graders:

For our 7th Grade Families, we are still awaiting information on how the new grading policy will impact high-school admissions for the Fall of 2021. Please continue to check the schools.nyc.gov website where the most current policies and guidelines are posted.  We understand that students and families have many questions, and we appreciate your patience as we wait for additional information from the Department of Education. As soon as I have information that may provide clarification, I will share it with you.

 

As we continue to receive guidance from the City and Department of Education in my next communications we’ll share additional information about the rest of this school year and planning for the next.

 

Thank you for your support and collaboration during this challenging time.

Sincerely,

Jen
