A series of meetings over two days provides parents of Southwest Allen County Schools students an opportunity to learn about how their children's progress in the classroom is being evaluated.
The sessions will feature presentations and insights from Dr. Thomas Guskey and Dr. Laura Link, specialists in the area of K-12 assessment. The school corporation has partnered with the duo to "ensure (it is) implementing the most effective practices that are both fair and accurate" when it comes to student grading.
Officials say the meetings will provide parents with:
Highlights of our recent SACS Parent Survey
An opportunity to give further input on SACS’ assessment and grading practices
An overview of future SACS assessment pilots and grading conversations
Ideas for how to best help your student with assessments
All sessions will take place at Homestead High School's Community Room. Attendees are asked to enter through door #1.
