IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT:

April 27, 2020
Dear Prosser School District Parents and Students,
On April 21, 2020, the State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) provided new guidance on student grading.  The guidance given by OSPI restricts districts from offering a Failing “F,” No Credit “NC”, or Pass “P” grade. Additionally, the guidance asked districts to allow students to resubmit and complete work that would improve the grade they had at the time of closure.  If a student’s work does not meet expectations, an incomplete “I” grade can be issued. If a student receives an “I” grade, the student will be asked to make complete the missing work as soon as school reconvenes.  Students receiving letter grades in grades K – 12 will have two options: 
Option 1: Maintain their March 17, 2020 Passing Grade 
Option 2: Improve their March 17, 2020 Grade
Because there will be no “F” or “NC” grades, all K-8 students will be promoted to the next grade.
The district has not made a definitive decision on the scale of grades which will be offered.  We hope to make this decision in the near future after we have collaborated with our teachers, administrators and parents. The considerations include a very limited “A” or “I” (Incomplete) grade scale and a fuller scale which includes “A-D” or “I”. Regardless of the scale chosen, your child’s grade will not be lower than what it initially was at the time of closure.  If you have input or questions about the topic of grading, please reach out to your child’s building administrator.
Prosser School District is committed to providing every student the opportunity to continue to engage in distance learning through the remainder of the school year. Our distance learning will focus on critical core learning standards and learning activities provided by teachers to help students progress in their learning and prepare for the next level.  It is important for learning to continue, and student grades to not be negatively affected by the school closure. We encourage and expect students to engage in learning activities provided by teachers.  
Matthew Ellis
Superintendent
