June 17, 2019 at 5:30 PM - GMSD Work Session

Agenda
Annual Review/ Revision of Policies-First reading
Rationale: 

Department of Academic Education

Summary of the revisions requested for Policy IP 4.600 - Grading - First Reading

  1. We are moving to a standards-based report card for 2nd grade, per the recommendation of principals, teachers, and the academic department. 
  2. I added the conduct grade section that was previously included in the Grades 2-5 section to the K-2 section.
  3. We no longer need to reference the Class of 2016 for weighted GPA descriptions.  We are requesting to clean up some of the information for parents by removing that line from the policy.
  4. I added clarification to the requirement that a student must sit for the exam to receive the weighted points for GPA calculations.  The statement was previously included, but I added that the additional percentage points are awarded “ONLY” to students who sit for the identified exam.
  5. The report card schedule dates are not listed in the policy, so I included a statement that notifies parents that the report card schedule will be posted on the district and school websites.
