Bradley eNews – May 11-15
AP TESTING STARTS THIS WEEK – PARENTS PLEASE READ
AP Testing will be Monday, May 11th-Friday May 22nd. The exam schedule is on the following link: https://apcoronavirusupdates.collegeboard.org/students/taking-ap-exams/ap-exam-schedule
AP students need to review their College Board user profiles. To ensure AP students are receiving critical information, make sure they log in to My AP . Use the email address and cell phone number that was asked by the College Board to use. Students can change how we contact them. Two days before each exam, AP students will receive an email with a personalized e-ticket that will include their eight-character AP ID code. If an AP student still doesn’t receive the email, they’ll be able to access their e-ticket directly through My AP.
Students, get plenty of rest, prepare adequately and charge the device that you are planning on using the day before your exam. Log in 30 minutes prior to your exam. Organization can be difficult at home. I would suggest that you set an alarm in your phone. If you have any questions please reach out to your AP teacher. If they are not able to answer your question please reach out to Mrs. Holt at email@example.com or Debbie_barie@hboe.org. Good luck!

This week’s video message from the superintendent includes information on eLearning grades, when the last day of eLearning will be, and more details on why we need options this fall.
Grading Practice for the Remainder of the 2019/20 School Year
Hilliard Schools is proud of the continued learning during this time. Our students are in attendance and doing assignments every day. While it hasn’t been ideal, we have maintained our focus on the whole child, including academics, interests and mindset.
Knowing our students and families have been living in a national crisis we are committed to making sure eLearning does not have an adverse impact on a student’s final grade. Here are the district’s plans for issuing end of the year grades.
Secondary Report Card
4th Quarter Grades and Semester Grades (Grades 6-12)
- Our grading procedure will remain unchanged for the 4th quarter. Students will receive letter grades as they normally would if learning was taking place inside our school buildings.
- If a student has a lower 4th quarter grade than what they earned for the 3rd quarter, the student will receive the higher 3rd quarter as their semester grade.
- If a student has a higher 4th quarter grade than the 3rd quarter grade, the student’s semester grade will be a calculation of both quarters (each quarter counts as 50% of semester grade).
- There will be no final exams administered, no state and no district testing.
Elementary Progress Report
For Marking Period 3 of this school year, teachers will create a brief summary of each student in the comments section and include the following:
- Student’s strengths
- Student’s area of focus for improvement
- Student’s progress towards grade level expectations prior to eLearning
- Recommendation for maintaining skills over the summer
We will not be issuing final marks for elementary students.
Teachers will utilize the prepared comments on report cards and may add additional comments for individual students when warranted.
IEP Progress Reports will include:
- Details about your students’ IEP goals and how objectives have continued to be monitored for progress during eLearning.
- The progress your students made during the end of the 2019-2020 school year will be detailed in the IEP progress report.
Returning iPads, and other district issued items the week of May 26-29, 2020
Your building principal will soon be sharing information with you about when you will be able to drop off your student’s iPad for the summer check-in at your school. Our seniors will be turning in their iPads on May 15, all other students will check in items May 26-29.
Along with your iPad turn in, remember to bring back all text books, library books, sports uniforms, musical instruments, and any other school issued items. Our staff has put together student personal items and will distribute when you return school issued items.
