Guidelines
1. Accuracy is of prime importance in record keeping.
2. Never share a student's grades with anyone other than the student and parents.
3. Review their grades frequently.
4. If a student questions a grade, require him or her to give evidence that an error was made. (I required my students keep a copy of all graded papers, tests and reports)
5. From the first day of class explain how the grades are calculated and kept.
6. Utilize the school website, email, blog, twitter, fax, telephone and the US mail to update the parents on a student's progress. Never give the parent the option of claiming they did not know that the student was failing. If possible keep a hard copy of the grades incase of computer crashes.
7. Be prepared to defend the grades to the parents, guidance, administration and in some cases a court.
8. A grade book is a legal document and must be reviewed, updated, maintained and stored for future references.
