Skyward
High school and middle school grades are updated here every two weeks. This is also the location for lunch balance, schedule, attendance, etc. This is the grade as of the Monday of grade postings in Skyward. We recognize some parents appreciate viewing grades through Skyward and wanted to provide clarity as to when Skyward reflects accurate grades. Students are continually learning, and teachers are updating grades, so the most accurate reflection of grades and related details is in Canvas.

Grading Guidelines
In 2015-16 the Black River Falls Middle School and High School implemented a new grading and assessment (testing) policy. This is based on best practices in assessment and grading. It was developed over the course of the prior year through a collaborative process by teachers and administrators from both schools as well as the district office. Here are a few highlights.

At Risk Plan
Every school board in the state must identify the children who are at risk of not graduating from high school and, annually by August 15, develop a plan describing how the school board will meet the needs of those students.

Title VI
