SBL Update and Clarification from Mrs. Gasser (11/29/22)

Standards Based Learning

Dear STEM School Highlands Ranch Secondary Families,

Yesterday a teacher shared a video with students about SBL and there was some confusion about grades and what they mean. In response to the questions, I wanted to take this opportunity to reiterate and clarify what was shared in the video. This message was also shared with Secondary Students today.

Here is an explanation of final grades:

In your Student’s grade book:

  • 4-3 = A
  • 2.5-2.99 = B
  • 2.0-2.49 = C
  • 1.0- 2.0 = D

For HS, your student’s GPA converts just like it always has:

  • A = 4.0 GPA
  • B = 3.0 GPA
  • C = 2.0 GPA
  • D = 1.0 GPA

Check out the video to the right that was put together on what the Student’s Grade Book looks like and how you can locate all of the data that you need for final grades. Teachers will be going through this with students during class sometime this week.

Thank you,

Michelle Gasser, Director of Professional Development
