Bryan school district teachers are getting more guidance about issuing grades.
Revisions were approved at this week’s school board workshop, following recommendations from central office administrators, building principals, teachers, and students.
Assistant superintendent Teressa Voltz says teachers will be told to count each major grade once. Dr. Voltz told board member Kelly Levey that some teachers had counted the same grade multiple times.
Board members also called on teachers to be more timely in recording grades. Tommy Bosquez said he from parents about delays in recording homework assignments.
Superintendent Tommy Wallis responded to teachers recording grades more timely and making changes to reflect when students don’t turn in homework due to excused absences.
Grading policies were also split into three age groups in Bryan schools, one for kindergarten and first grades, another for second through fifth grade, and for grades six through 12.
