Grades 1-5 Grade Scales and Grading Period information

  • The elementary grading period consists of a nine-weeks format. There are four nine week grading periods in a school year. Report cards are to be sent home no later than ten days after a grading period ends. Each elementary school will also send home a comprehensive interim report for each child at the halfway point of each grading period, ensuring that parents can monitor their child’s performance on a monthly basis.
     
    The Report Card 
    The report card in Grades 1-5 will be issued by the school for each of the four nine-week grading periods. These grading periods are defined by the Knox County Schools annual system-wide school calendar.
