Dear Parents and Guardians,
Thank you for supporting P.S. 298 to bridge the home-school connection during these challenging times. Our joint efforts and strong partnerships will lead our children to their greatest successes. Understanding the difficulty that our families have in juggling remote learning with other equally important priorities, we thank you for continuing to be so supportive of our teachers and our school.
For remote learning the grading policy has been adapted in order to allow for all students to be given an opportunity to succeed.
Remote Learning Grading Policy is as follows
35 % - Classwork
35 %- Homework
15 % - Quizzes
15 % - Tests
Based on evidence of student work and evidence of student engagement, the student has met New York State standards of academic achievement
0-55% - Based on evidence of student work and evidence of student engagement, the student is approaching the New York State standards of academic achievement with minimal growth in the discipline
The P.S. 298 Remote Learning Grading Policy applies to all P.S. 298 students equally with an exception for our 3K and Pre-K students
· You can always frequently contact P.S. 298 teachers to discuss areas of academic concern. We are here to work with you
· Your child’s academic progress and performance is based on evidence of student work and evidence of student engagement
· Evidence of student work and evidence of student engagement is your child’s completion of (a) performance tasks, (b) assessments, (c) assignments, (d) homework; and/or your child’s engagement in (a) live class discussions, (b) discussion threads, (c) email/chat feature correspondence, and/or (d) office hour meetings with their teacher
· Students receiving a grade of N will be able to participate in summer learning. You will receive information about summer school soon
We have always said that we are “Panthers Strong” and you continue to prove that each and every day through your hard work and diligence in making sure your child continues to “level up”.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact Ms. Basir, the P.S. 298 parent coordinator, at or Krystal Moore at KMoore16@schools.nyc.gov. You may also contact your child’s teacher via phone, email, Class Dojo, or Google Classroom. Follow us on social media for the latest info!
