It's Friday and not only is the week winding down but so is First Quarter. The Chicklet told me she's getting her report card today and she's not expecting a high grade in math....hmmmmmm...
Our school district has invested thousands of dollars in a new grading/computer system which we've been getting trained on over the last few weeks. The overall grade for this new system? S-T-U-P-I-D or "Falls Far Below." The FFB is equivalent to an "F" based on our new Standards based grading scale.
What was on a page last week has been reconfigured this week. Directions given on Tuesday were the opposite of what was announced Wednesday. We input grades yesterday, the computer changed them on the report card when they were transferred from the Grade Book. Ahhhh.......sigh.... the wonders of bureaucracy.
OK, on a brighter note!
