Grades are distributed at the end of each marking period. Parents will be informed if students are not performing at the appropriate academic level. In the case of K to 2nd grades they will be used as a means to better understand the progress towards learning objectives in smaller pieces.
It is the responsibility of the teacher, under the supervision of the Director, to determine the instructional level of the students in reading and mathematics. Once these levels are determined, the discussion of grade placement for the following year will take place with all parties. It is the desire of IAS that all students progress in the appropriate grade/age levels. However, this requires completion of learning skills at a passing level in all areas of study.
