DFA's - NEW for 4th Quarter
During the final quarter of the year the school district saves students DFA's as a portfolio (if needed due to not passing the FSA). During this quarter 7 DFA's are given (4 based on passages and 3 are grammar focused). All 7 will be graded and entered into the grade book. Once ALL are complete, the lowest 3 grades will be dropped for each student. So only 4 of the DFA grades will count for their report card.
We are not scheduling DFA's during testing weeks, so it means we have had to double up and sometimes there will be 2 during one week.
This week we are learning:
