SBG. The district has bungled its implementation so bad that it looks like a twisted mess of dog poop and earthworms. Everyone likes a comeback though, and here it comes. The first step in the reclamation process is an adjustment to the grading scale.
Frankly, the grading scale has been such a distraction and source of morose stupefaction for our teachers that something had to be done. I suggested a return to non-uniformity, but this may be better. Here are some things I like about the document:
- It's concise (this has not always been the case).
- It's based in research (this has not always been the case).
- It clearly addresses staff concerns (up until now it was our fault - we need to be "trained" more).
As critical as I've been publicly of our district administration, it's only fair that I call them out when they do something right. Good job, and keep the positive momentum!
