Grading the grading system in Chesterfield schools
Chesterfield County Public Schools is in the process of grading its grading system — a strategy identified in the school system’s Design for Excellence 2020 strategic plan. The goal is making sure that grades support student learning, measure student achievement and give feedback on specific areas of strength and weakness.
A grading practices committee made up
of teachers, students, parents and administrators is spearheading this effort.
The committee has reviewed a 10-point grading scale as an alternative to the
6-point scale currently in place in Chesterfield County Public Schools.
As part of the process to evaluate
grading practices, Chesterfield County Public Schools is seeking input. An
online survey for parents has been created and will be available through Dec.
20 at www.surveymonkey.com/s/GradingPracticesParent. For more information, visit the
grading practices page of mychesterfieldschools.com.
