Baltimore County doesn’t give grades for most homework

Baltimore County won’t give grades for homework. A new grading policy took effect at the beginning of this school year on a trial basis, the Baltimore Sun reports. “Under the policy, explained in a 60-page document available on the county schools’ website, homework is not graded, teachers cannot give a student a failing grade lower than 50, and students who don’t perform well on a test or assignment can redo it to get a higher grade.”

Teachers will report behavior, effort, class participation and whether the student has done homework on the report card, but it will not be counted as part of the grade. Homework will be assigned but not graded. There are exceptions for longer assignments such as an English essay or a biology lab report, which will continue to be graded, White said.
