Lafayette considering common grading system for high schools
LAFAYETTE- Lafayette Parish School System educators are working out a common grading system for high schools as part of a review of the parish's pupil progression plan.
The school system's new chief academic officer, Annette Samec, informed school board members of the potential common grading system during Wednesday's board meeting.
Samec said principals voiced concerns about grading during discussions about how to meet expectations set by Superintendent Donald Aguillard.
Aguillard has set goals for school principals that include spending more time in classrooms and improving their individual school performance scores by three points.
Aguillard said he plans to present a final plan to the board during a special board meeting on July 29.
Students return to classes on Aug. 13.
