Grading System

Report Cards:

Calibre Academy operates on a four (4) nine-week grading system. Students grades are viewable through our grading program.

Don’t wait for grade reports or report cards to discuss a student’s progress.  Grade books are updated on a regular basis and parents can access their student’s grades online at:

FamilyLink Portal


Weighted Grades:

Certain assignments count more towards a student’s grade, and are thus “weighted.” A student is more able to demonstrate mastery towards a skill in a unit assessment than they are in an exit ticket.  The following weights are applied to student work:

Classwork & Exit Tickets [1]   20%
Quizzes   30%
Assessments/Projects   50%


Grading Scale:

PL4 EXCELLENT- Student applies the concepts/skills consistently (90-100%)

PL3 ABOVE AVERAGE- Student applies the concepts/skills most of the time (80-89%)

PL2 AVERAGE- Student applies the concepts/skills with support (70-79%)

PL1 BELOW AVERAGE- Student requires considerable support to apply the concepts/skills (50-69%)

PL0 FAILURE- Student fails to apply the concepts/skills (0-49%)

Performance Level (PL)
