Citizenship Grade Rubric

CITIZENSHIP

Per SDUSD AR 5121, “Citizenship marks shall not be influenced by academic marks and reflect the student’s general behavior, punctuality, effort, and work habits within the school community. These marks are indications of the student’s ability to participate effectively in a democratic society…”

Citizenship marks reflect the student’s general behavior, punctuality, effort, and work habits within the school community. These marks are indications of the student’s ability to participate effectively in a classroom.

Behavior goals, language proficiency levels, and social-emotional needs shall be considered prior to issuing a citizenship mark. Absences for religious or cultural holiday observance, excused absences, and excused tardies shall not be factored into the citizenship grade.

Students must maintain the equivalent of a ‘C’ average (2.0) in academics and citizenship to be eligible for participation in interscholastic athletics and/or co-curricular activities, using the below four-point citizenship grading scale.

Citizenship marks are earned based on one or more of the following criteria listed in the rubric below.  Any grades assigned for citizenship shall be reported as follows:
