TO: Return the Grading System in Billerica Schools to Percentages & Letter Grades A,B,C
Currently the administration has removed traditional grades(percentages & A,B,C)in K-6. Now using a Standard Base Report Card (SBRC) with subjective numbers 1-4. They plan to continue it in 7 & 8. And these numbers are NOW appearing on rubrics in High School. The SBRC is NOT a recognized grading system for colleges or private schools therefore your son or daughter 4 years of progress in High School will be reduced to 1 SAT score. The Core Curriculum brought down by the state to follow is not just a group of numbers BUT a curriculum that teaches to every level of student. Ours is not it is teaching to the MEDIAN.
It does not drive academic achievement, but creates MEDIOCRITY. There is NO INITIATIVE for the student to Achieve Higher. Grading is INCONSISTENT.
The SYSTEM IS SUBJECTIVE.
Teachers are not speaking up for fear of there jobs!!!
The HONOR ROLL no longer exists. Let's give our children the ability to ASPIRE HIGHER !!
