Last full day of school. Today I will finish paperwork, cleaning and organizing.
My exam grades came in from the scanner. There were 2 kids that failed by only one point. In the past a second teacher would have looked at the writing portion of the exam then the 2 graders' results would be compared. Now those kids fail the course. It sucks.
I am ready for this year to be over.

They can re test next January to try and get credit.
It's not all lost then, still a pain though!
And I should 'ave digested the 'writing portion of the exam' bit of the post really which gives it away, dill!
And that far away for retesting really serves these kids, jeeze! Our high school has a second chance week the week after school ends. Basically, kids that fail by like 5 pts or less can do this intensive week on the subject and then get credit for the course. This is separate from summer school and I believe costs nothing. You can only do it for one class, but it makes a world o difference for kids like the two you mentioned.
That is a great idea mudflinger.
They allowed us to do a second look regrade after all. My 2 and another teacher's student now have 65 on the exam and will get credit. Phew!
Oh thank goodness!
Hears to a Happy Summer Break!

On a side note.. I am failing miserably on Whole 30.
