Grades and transparency are the topics for today's meeting of the Wake County school board's policy committee.
The committee has tried several times to discuss the proposed overhaul of the grading policy, specifically what changes board members don't want staff to make such as a blanket elimination of extra credit. But problems such as the committee running out of time or staff not being ready to discus the R&P delayed discussion.
The committee will also have another discussion of the transparency policy proposed by board member Debra Goldman. At the last meeting, staff raised concerns about the policy leading to a lot of extra work and the posting of sensitive items.
What you might now see emerge is the transparency policy becoming more of a high-concept idea rather than a document laden with specifics.
