Positive Grading Practice and Infinite Campus

Parents and Students:

During this extended school closure, the Morgan County Charter School System has remained dedicated to engaging students with academic content and reaching out to families to help meet various needs. We recognize this time has tested us all. Because the COVID-19 pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges, the Georgia Department of Education and State Board of Education have waived some state-required elements for schools such as Georgia Milestones Assessments. Additionally, they have asked local districts to consider ensuring that local policies and practices do not penalize students for circumstances beyond their control. At the May 11, 2020, Board of Education meeting, the Board approved a waiver of Policy IHE: Promotion and Retention for the 2019-2020 school year. This approval allows us the flexibility to change our grading practice to one that is only positive for students' averages.

Infinite Campus has worked with us to capture the student's average from March 13, 2020. This in-progress average will not decrease, and all work submitted during the closure will only be counted if it improves this average. Any missing assignment due after March 13, 2020, will not be calculated as a zero. Grades earned prior to March 13, 2020, can remain as assigned. Teachers will spend the next week updating Infinite Campus to reflect the positive grading practice.

The parent and student Infinite Campus portals will be closed during this time and will re-open on May 22, 2020. If you have any questions, please contact your child's principal.

A Message From Dr. Edwards


MCHS families,

The news of us not being together in our school for the rest of year feels so big right now. It creates so many emotions, especially for our seniors. It also creates a lot of questions and anxiety about the "unknowns".

We know that social separation is what we need to do to keep our students, faculty, families, and community safe.

Here's what else we want for you to KNOW:

- See that group of Superheroes? That's a faculty and staff who love and miss our students. That's the same group of people who are going to continue to work "differently" for the remainder of the school year for our students.

- We have always been blessed to have a supportive community. We know that they will come together to support and celebrate our students.

- GRADUATION WILL HAPPEN. Dr. Woodard and I have already been sharing ideas and possibilities. It is important to us - and every single caped crusader in that picture - that our seniors have the recognition that they have earned.

- It's April 1st. That means that we have time to work and plan for the end of the year traditions that will make memories for our students. And we'll be doing just that over the next few days and weeks.

- We're in this together. With you and for you.

One Morgan.


If you have questions or concerns, email us or call the school. Your teachers, counselors, administrators, and support staff are all here for you!
