New grading terms at Peachtree Ridge
New this year at Peachtree Ridge, our 18 week courses will earn official grades and .5 credit towards graduation at the end of each nine weeks. This change only impacts courses that are one semester (18 week) courses; it does not impact courses that meet both fall and spring semesters. Please note that our first nine-week grading period will end on Friday, October 4.
The second nine-week grading period will begin on Monday, October 7, and end on December 20. As of October 7 parents will no longer see grades for the first nine weeks on the parent portal; however, our teachers will email a summary grade report to parents from each course once grades are finalized by the end of October. As a reminder, these grades will appear on our students' permanent transcripts that are mailed home in January and in May. Please contact your child's teachers directly if you have questions or concerns regarding their current grades.
