Visitors to Board Meeting: Tracy Moody approached the board to discuss weighting grades. Discussion was held regarding potential changes to how grades are weighted in the high school (a higher weight is given to dual credit classes) and potentially looking at changing the grading scale. Superintendent Siemsen is going to poll area schools to determine if we are on par with the area or if we need to look at making changes to ensure that our students are in line with their peers and the potential opportunities they would have at scholarships and such (this research will postpone the approval of the parent/student handbook as changes may need to be made at the August meeting).
