GRADING AND REPORT CARDS
In order for BISD students to be promoted to the next grade level, they must show that they have learned what the State of Texas requires of all public school children. “Promotion Standards” generally include classroom grades and local or state testing.

Nine-week grading periods are used in all BISD Schools. All schools will send report cards to parents four times during the year, shortly after the end of each nine-week grading period. Parents and students may also view grading at regular intervals using the parent self-serve and student self-serve platforms.
If a student is not progressing satisfactorily, parents receive a preliminary report at the midpoint of the grading period and at other times as necessary. Parents should sign and return the reports.

Grades and Extracurricular Activities
Under the state’s “no pass/no play” law, eligibility for participation in extracurricular activities during the first six weeks of the school year is determined by a student’s grades from the final grading cycle of the previous school year or the number of credits earned during the previous school year.
After the first six weeks, a student who receives a grade lower than 70 (or the equivalent) in any academic course is ineligible to participate in extracurricular activities during the first three school weeks of the next grading period. During that time, the student may continue to practice or rehearse with other students but may not take part in any competition or public performance.
