Clearing the air on grading shifts at SCSD

I’d like to take some time to explain why and how Solon plans to overhaul the way it assesses its students.
The Solon Community School District (SCSD) chose to look at its grading practices during the 2011-2012 school year. What we discovered was that teachers held wildly different policies for grading student work. We also discovered that some of our district’s college freshmen were reporting difficulty in retaining information for their first set of collegiate finals.
