July 11, 2016 at 5:00 PM - GMSD Work Session

Minutes
Renewal of Superintendent's Contract
Speaker(s):  Linda Fisher
New Policy SP 6.305 Student Suicide Prevention
Speaker(s):  Chauncey Bland
Revision of Policy IP 4.600 Grading
Speaker(s):  Teresa Price
Rationale: 

Note the following changes/revisions in the policy:

  • Page 1 # 4 and Page 3 #2:  Both of them are removing the maximum number of grades stipulation for K-5 and for 6-12
  • Page 5:  Pursuant to Public Chapter No. 957 and Senate Bill No. 1831 effective July 1, 2016, statewide Dual Credit (DC) courses must count as 3/4 point quality point, so we had to edit the grading policy from 1 quality point back to 3/4.  

 Also attached is the state Uniform Grading Policy, PC0957 document, and Legislative Update Webinar (see page 34).  Here is the link pertaining to the new law:  http://wapp.capitol.tn.gov/apps/Billinfo/default.aspx?BillNumber=SB1831&ga=109
