Google Gradebook and Adjustment Period
Program Intro: As you know, MC2 STEM High School is now a part of the Google Schools program. This program allows us to tie all of your students classes together, provide missing mastery work, and transfer grades from one year to the next. While there are many grading and online systems out there, we have chosen to use the Google Suite of Apps because this program is the only one that allows us to use a truly mastery based programming approach. We understand that with this, there are a lot of glitches as we transfer over, but we are working diligently to try to resolve all of these issues and perfect this program.
