School Board approves new grading guidelines

At a regular meeting, the School Board issued their new grading guidelines in response to the new state testing requirements with the EOC/STAAR exams. All changes will take effect in January 2012.

Among the new changes, the guidelines now dictate that teachers must enter at least two daily grades per week and have at least two major grades entered by the fifth week of the six weeks grading period. Other changes include the number of exemptions students may apply for in high school. Students will not be allowed to exempt any EOC-tested exam.
