• Grading policies for 3rd, 4th & 5th grade plus tutoring K-5

    Groves Elementary follows the district grading guidelines, as outlined in the Humble ISD parent/student handbook


    Grading Policy:

    The actual grade reflecting the student’s relative mastery of an assignment will be recorded and averaged to determine the nine week grades.  No grade less than a 50 should be recorded.

    Late Work Policy:

    Assignments and tests must be completed and turned in on the assigned date in order to receive full credit.  In an effort for the student’s work to reflect mastery of the content presented in the assignment, no more than 10 points total points will be deducted for late work. 

    Re-teaching and Reassessment:

    The intent of Humble Independent School District’s re-teaching and reassessment policy is to ensure that students have an opportunity to master the District’s curricular objectives.  Re-teaching in the District may be integrated into lessons during guided practice and may be a part of the explanation phase when checking for understanding is done.  The teacher will determine when re-teaching should be scheduled.  For critical skills, it will be done immediately; for recurring skills, it may be deferred.

    Reassessing Groups:

    An entire class or group will be re-taught and reassessed with a different assessment when the teacher determines that 50% or more of the class has failed to perform at mastery level (70%). The higher of the two grades shall be recorded in the grade book for each class member.


    Homework should not be graded.


    All teachers (k-5) must offer tutoring to students not meeting specific skills or benchmarks.
