In the rare situation that a student has not had the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of the course content and skills due to extenuating circumstances, New York City Public Schools may award one of following special marks as a grade on the Report Card:
New or Recently Admitted Students: Students who enroll in school after it has started may have missed assignments or assessments needed to generate a complete course grade for a given marking period. These students may be given a grade of ‘NL’ to indicate this circumstance.
Students with Excessive Absences: A grade of ‘NS’ (insufficient attendance) is given to a student who is unable to attend school and is not able to participate in any of the work from which a grade can be derived.
English Language Learner (ELL) Students: For English Language Learners (ELL) students, the grading policy will consider the student’s English as a Native Language (ENL) proficiency level, and will include opportunities for students to demonstrate mastery of the New York State Education Department Learning Standards in their native language.
Students with Disabilities (SWD) Students: Students with disabilities receive progress reports on their annual goals. Progress reports are distributed at the same time as report cards and reflect the likelihood that a student will meet their annual goals or has already met their annual goals. Progress reports do not replace report cards for students with disabilities.
