Good Evening,

 

Today, I met with each grade level in the auditorium to discuss some behaviors that are happening in many high schools as well as ours. I discussed the risky behavior of vaping and jeweling and also asked students to lead by example for being more respectful to one another. In anticipation of winter carnival next week, I reminded them of the importance to be good people. Hopefully, they’ll talk with you about today’s meeting.

 

The always important question has been asked by students and I want to explain Graduation. With a tentative last day for students on or around Thursday, June 21st,Graduation will not be before June 14th. Under Ed. 306.18, the school year for high school seniors may be reduced by no more than 5 days or 30 hours of instruction, whichever is less. If we pursue Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion, we will not receive confirmation until 60 days prior to our event. As soon as I have more information about Graduation, I will update you.

 

Our teachers have been finalizing a consistent reassessment procedure to implement next year that allows students to reflect and relearn material they did not acquire during their assessments. This reassessment procedure will allow opportunities for students to gain a deeper knowledge of the material based on an agreed upon plan established between the student and teacher. I’ve attached an article that our team leaders grappled with recently in a meeting. The article, titled “Redos and Retakes Done Right”, points to some current grading practices already implemented at GHS. This procedure will be fully implemented next fall. Rick Wormeli is an American educator and national consultant referred to as the guru on grading practices.
