If you would like to schedule an appointment with your child's counselor, please call the Guidance Office at (570) 839-7121 Ext. 50460. Counselors are assigned by grade:
The Pocono Mountain School District believes that every student should be provided as many opportunities as possible to demonstrate achievement in each marking period.
Classroom assessments are what collectively contribute to the formation of a grade for each student. Assessments may include homework, tests, quizzes, class work, lab work, projects, paper & pencil activities, notebook checks, portfolios, class participation, verbal presentations, and final exams.
At the middle of every marking period, a Progress Report is sent home, 4 per year. The Progress Reports allow students time to improve their grade standing if they are doing poorly. Every 45 days, a formal Report Card is issued to the students, also 4 per year.
The scale and designation of alpha and numeric grades is as follows:
92 – 100 A – Distinguished Honors
83 – 91 B – Honors
74 – 82 C – Acceptable Work
65 – 73 D – Marginally Passing
