    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.

    Yeah, like the boring of a second rectum!!

    P, not really conversant with your education system, but can the kids take a retest, or is it course work type stuff? Either way, it sucks?

    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!
