  • Middle and High School Grading

    Posted by NICOLE THOMPSON on 4/29/2020

    Middle and High School Grading 

    The guidelines for grading during the COVID 19 public health emergency at the middle and high school levels in the Bethel School District have been finalized and are listed below. These guidelines align with the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction’s (OSPI’s) guidance for grading during remote learning.

    Middle school students will earn an A, B, C, or Inc. (incomplete) for all courses they are enrolled in. Teachers will determine and inform students what constitutes an A, B, C, or Inc. For students who receive an Inc., teachers may allow the student extra time to demonstrate competency on the standards. As middle school students progress into the 2020-21 school year, grades from this trimester will be used by teachers to develop lessons designed to meet student learning needs. Students enrolled in high school Algebra will follow the high school grading practices.

    High school students will receive an A, B, C, or Inc. (incomplete), for all courses they are enrolled in. Teachers will determine and inform students what constitutes an A, B, C, or Inc. Grades students earn will be based on the student’s demonstration of competency of the standards that have been modified for remote learning. Students who receive an Inc. will need to demonstrate competence on the required standards to convert the Inc. to a grade. This could include re-enrolling in the course, making plans with the teacher to allow the student extra time to demonstrate competency on the standards or, in unique circumstances, creating an alternative plan with a counselor/administrator to demonstrate meeting standards for the course to move the Inc. to an A, B, or C. Accommodations/modifications for grading and/or credits outlined in a student’s IEP will be honored.

    High school students in Bethel are completing an entire trimester of courses in the remote learning setting. We understand that the circumstances of the pandemic and the remote learning setting are creating challenges for many students and families. We want to encourage all students to make every effort they can to engage in their courses. However, for students who are not able to engage in their course work, we will work with them to assure they continue to be “on track” for graduation. A benefit to the newly implemented trimester system is current 9th, 10th, and 11th graders will have flexibility in their schedule to re-enroll in a course where an Inc. is issued.

    If you need additional assistance, please reach out to your counselor, teacher, advisor, or a building administrator.

Principal's Message



    Cougar Mountain Families,

    My name is Brittany Corpuz and I am your new Principal. I’ve been the Assistant Principal of Cougar Mountain for the past three years. Prior to that I taught 1st grade at Graham Elementary, and spent the first nine years of my career as an Instructional Coach and Teacher at a Native Tribal school. I truly love every aspect of being an educator!  It is my goal, each and every day, to create capable, connected and contributing members of our community! I have two children of my own, Kai’leia is 11 and will be in 6th grade next year, and Keh’ano is 8 and will be in 3rd grade next year. My husband is Brian Corpuz and he is a 5th grade teacher at Spanaway Elementary. We are truly committed on both a personal and professional level to ensure the success of our students here in Bethel. Cougar Pride!
