About DCIS Academics

  • Sixth grade has five teams. 

  • Each team has five core teachers: Math, Science, Geography, Literature and Composition

  • Each student will rotate through the five core teachers. 

  • Class periods are 50 minutes each.

  • Students choose from these electives and can take a new elective each quarter: STEM, PE, Robotics, Cultural Connections, Technology, Art, Choir and Band.

Antler Time

All students will participate in Antler Time for 30 minutes each day. Antler Time provides time for: 

  • Enrichment
  • Intervention
  • Re-Teaching
  • Retesting
  • Interest Groups
  • Extra Electives

Grading

Sixth Grade will report student progress on priority standards using a traditional grade book.

A = 90’s
B = 80’s
C= 70’s
D = 60’s
F = 50’s

A Base 50 number scale will be used to make sure we compensate for any pitfalls of a 100 point range.

Grades are available online 24 hours a day 7 days a week through Infinite Campus.
