LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The Lafayette Parish School Board will consider changes to its high school grading practices at its Aug. 5 meeting as part of recommendations to update the pupil progression plan.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1MtOAgM) the pupil progression plan is updated annually. The proposed high school grading changes are based on recommendations from teachers and administrators to ensure the same grading weight is applied to certain assessments when calculating a student’s overall grade in a course.

Students return to school on Aug. 13. Earlier this month, Chief Academic Officer Annette Samec told the school board to expect a recommendation on a common grading policy for high schools based on discussions with principals. She said the principals were concerned about how grading policies vary from school to school and teacher to teacher.
