How CPS Will Handle Grades

CPS grades

In 2020-21, Cincinnati Public Schools will follow the Board-adopted grading policy (which was suspended in Spring 2020 due to the unexpected COVID-19 mandatory school closure).

Pass/Incomplete is no longer in affect. Teachers will be grading the work they have assigned in Schoology*. They will clearly post due dates for all your work. They will communicate your learning goals and the performance standards you need to meet, the meaning of district assessment scores, and how grades are determined. To access your most up-to-date grades, log into PowerSchool.

*Please note: Ethel M. Taylor Academy and Aiken High School will use Echo instead of Schoology.

Request a Teacher Call Back

CPS teachers will be holding office hours each week to connect with students and parents – answering questions and offering feedback about academic content. Please make sure to check PowerSchool to ensure that CPS has your family’s correct phone number and email address. To request a call back from your child’s teacher, complete this form.
