Collaborating and Improvising to Improve Grading and Reporting

Date: Thursday, May 21, 2020

Cost: Free

The changes brought on by the coronavirus pandemic require educators rethink all the ways we communicate information about student learning. This session describes the most important changes that need to be considered in grading policies and practices. Keeping in mind the many practical challenges teachers face, we review the importance of fairness and equity in grading and describe ways ensure meaningful communication between teachers, students and families. Procedures for implementing new reporting structures are highlighted, together with policies and practices that should be avoided due to their negative consequences for students, teachers, and schools.

Note: If you are a nursing mother, please be sure to include that in the notes of your registration. We have a private room available for nursing mothers, which must be reserved. The key can be obtained from Emily at the front desk when you arrive.

It's that time of the year where the unpredictable weather outdoors makes our training rooms either too cold or too warm. Training room temperatures are controlled offsite and often take time before the adjustment is noticed. We suggest bringing a sweater, wearing close-toed shoes and/or dressing in layers to assure you are as comfortable as possible while at our facility.
