GRADING POLICY: Grades are based on a point system and are consistent with Ralston High’s grading system. Points are earned in a variety of ways including class participation, journals, projects, facility evaluations and dress code.
The following is an explanation of Ralston High’s grading system:
A = Superior 92-100% D = Below Average 67-75%
B = Above Average 84-91% F = Failure 66% and below
C = Average 76-83% Inc. = work to be made up
Dress code: you will receive ONE warning about dress. At the beginning of each quarter you will have 25 dress points. After ONE warning you will begin to lose points for dress code infractions. On your 3rd dress violation you not be allowed to go on your rotation and you will also lose evaluation points.
NO CELL PHONES ON CLINICAL ROTATIONS – AT ALL!
