    • Schools are beginning to use a new system to give students grades. Instead of the typical A+ through D- grading scale, students are given a number 1-4, 1 being the student is struggling, 4 being the student is exceeding expectations. With this new grading scale, communication with the parents increases. The parents are then able to better their children and embrace the areas in which they excel and help in the areas in which they may not be as strong. Parents received a version of both grading systems. The new idea was selected as the favorite more than the old system. This new idea of report cards gives an opportunity for both teachers and parents to come together to create an individualized plan to help that student in that particular area. Some students are frustrated with having to retake tests and quizzes to show that they're being proficient. Grades are having less and less to do with who is the smartest, but are more focused on if the material is being learned to the point that the next grade level is achievable. These reports are available online to parents, with a more summarized version of the reports coming in the near future.
