For K3–5, the report card concludes the Quarter 3 grades. Quarters are averaged for a final, yearlong grade.
For Grades 6–12, the report card represents a kind of screenshot of current (mid-term) grades for the semester. A student’s assignments and grades continue to be added to the gradebook until the end of each semester. For middle school classes the semester grades are averaged for a yearlong grade. For high school classes grades and credits are by semester, not by year.
