A general grade distribution will exist at WWMS for all courses. The course grade distribution is:
Informal (Daily Class Work, Quizzes:) 50%
Formal (Common Assessments, Performance Based Tasks, Mid-Unit Tests, Final): 50%

Students will be allowed one (1) re-test opportunity for formal assessments upon completion of remediation. Re-takes must be completed by the next unit assessment.


The school term will be divided into four (4) quarters.  Progress reports will be sent home with students at the mid-point of each quarter.  Students will receive a copy of the 9-weeks report card at the end of each quarter.  The end-of-year report card will be sent home with students on the last day of the school year.  The 9-Weeks grade will reflect the average of all assignments for that quarter. Any changes in grades after this time will be reflected in the final yearly grade. The yearly grade is an average of all assignments given during the year. Students will receive a numerical grade for each class.  As we continue our progress in aligning our curriculum with the Georgia Performance Standards, Williams Middle School has adopted the following guidelines for standards-based grading:

A: 90 – 100 Student is exceeding the standard.
B: 80 – 89 Student is meeting the standard.
C: 70 – 79 Student is progressing toward the standard.
F: Below 70 Student is not progressing toward the standard.
