JHS Grading

The Jefferson staff has decided to pilot a Standards-Based gradebook for the 2022-2023 school year. Students will be evaluated solely on what they know and how they demonstrate their mastery of the Colorado Academic Standards. 

We believe students' grades will more accurately reflect their knowledge and skills, and that this grading philosophy will stop students from being penalized for factors outside of their control.


4-  Mastery

3-  Proficient 

2-  Approaching Proficiency

1- Developing Understanding
