Every term we have a variety of ways that students can work off citizenship issues such as 'U's and 'N's. Students are encouraged to make up citizenship grades that fall below satisfactory during the grading period with the help of their teacher. In the event the citizenship grade remains, several options will be given to the student through ISS.

Our grading scale at North Layton Junior High School is used by all teachers in all classes. We grade our students on what they learn and achieve. Other factors such as late work, attendance, and behavior in and out of the classroom are handled by the administration and office staff. These factors will be taken into account by teachers when figuring out their citizenship grade.
