eDCSD is on a quarterly grading period system.  The end of the grading period is Friday, May 25th, for the fourth quarter. All regular work is due by SUNDAY, May 20 AT MIDNIGHT and the next week is final exams.
At the high school level, a passing grade (D or above) at the end of the quarter is equal to .25 credits added to their transcript.  Quarter 3 and quarter 4 grades are not averaged. They are individual terms and are posted separately. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
