The Wake County school board's student achievement committee is expected to get into the issue today of what behaviors might be excluded from academic grades under proposed revisions to the grading policy.
At the last work session, the committee agreed to back restoring letter grades for grades 3-5. But some committee members expressed skepticism over changes such as counting retests, allowing late work to be handed in at a reduced penalty and eliminating extra credit.
Some committee members also want more discussion about how the policy revisions would handle cheating.
The committee will also discuss academic acceleration under policy 5532, dual enrollment for high school academic enrichment and expanded learning opportunities.
