Grading vote delay

The Avonworth school board decided to wait one month before holding a vote on whether to change the district’s grading scale.

Despite original plans to vote Monday, March 9, on whether to change from the seven-point scale currently used to a 10-point system, at the recommendation of superintendent Tom Ralston, the motion was not placed on this week’s school board agenda.

Ralston explained, “There are still a few items to iron out,” especially concerning “what to do within the 10-point scale.” Ralston said that he did not want the motion to proceed to a vote until he had obtained input from teachers and parents. For the April meeting, Ralston said, he expects to have a detailed plan prepared for the board.
