BOE approves new assessment protocol to be used by teachers
Several members of the Bacon County School Board and surrounding counties held a two day seminar to come up with ways to improve the learning experience for students.
The group had lengthy working session where educators shared ideas to bring forth to make sure students are getting the grade that actually reflects the knowledge a student has learned during the year.
“I was told by one educator at the conference that the difference between the Valedictorian and Salutatorian at one school was one point and that one point was earned for a can of beans the one student got for extra credit. We want to make sure something like that doesn’t happen to our students.” said Dr. Laine Reichert, Superintendent of Schools. We ant our students to get the grade they deserve and if it’s not high enough we want to give them extra help for them to achieve.”
