Grading Policy

To view the Departmental Grading Policy for courses offered in the English Department click here and a printable pdf document will appear in your screen.  Parents please encourage your children to be avid readers. That is the number one way to improve SAT verbal scores and your child's performance on the High School Assessment.

Summer Reading Assignment

All students coming to Douglass are expected to complete a summer reading assignment. Each grade level team has selected a novel that students coming into that grade will read over the summer and the students will be assessed on those novels sometime during the first week of school. 

 Please visit our Summer Assignments Page for more information about Summer Reading.

Please note that students going into any of the AP classes have additional summer assignments that they have to complete. The AP teachers will make give the assignments to students assigned to those classes and also make additional copies available in the counseling center.
