Honor Roll Back

Thursday, December 12, 2013

Honor Roll Back
In Virginia Beach elementary schools, grades of A to F have been replaced by a system using "Advanced Proficient," "Proficient," "Developing Proficiency" and "Novice."  School officials tasked with implementing these changes are also eliminating the honor roll system, saying it doesn't match the new grading sytem that replaces the A's needed for principal's list and the B's needed for honor roll.  We'll explore the reasoning behind the changes with Beach administrators and consider how they're being recieved by area teachers and parents.

Scheduled Guests:

Dr. Amy Cashwell - 
Chief Academic Officer, Department of Teaching and Learning. Virginia Beach City Public Schools

Shirann Lewis - Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Education, 
Virginia Beach City Public Schools

Lisa Hartman 
- Virginia Beach Parent
