-meet and exceed standard requirements for Illinois;
-enhance student knowledge and skills;

Assessments are based on a 5 point scale:

4 (-2) = B-
3.95 (-3) = C+
3.5 (-4) = C-
Effort-If the student has no checks, they will receive “outstanding” for effort.
If the student has 1 – 8 checks for behavior and/or 2 – 4 checks for no shoes, they will receive “satisfactory” for behavior.
If the student has 9 or more checks for behavior and/or 5 or more checks for no shoes, they will receive “needs improvement” for effort.
Students should be able to abide by the following expectations: when whistle is blown-stop, look, and listen; wear proper shoes; walk, unless otherwise stated; keep their personal self-space; be respectful.
