As we begin to test the waters of returning back to “normal” after Covid-19, we are also holding conversations about why “normal” may be the wrong destination for students, teachers, and parents. Join Dr. Rob Furman as he examines what we have learned about our “old school” grading system as a result of the pandemic. He will also discuss some changes that we should consider making to improve our grading system, including suggestions for how to get started.

I really like the re-structuring of the grain system is needed. We want them to learn the material, work and learn how we show parents/students their success needs to be more stream lined.

AAAAMEN!!! I have never understood the use of A,B,C,D,F being SO important to parents! It makes no sense. Standards based makes more sense with the kids giving their "Presentation of learning" at a conference of the three (Parents/ teacher and child) At his point, it could even take place through zoom. ..all could stay home and still communicate. Face to face is better if possible though! I said this years ago, and I got laughed at.
A lot of really interesting, and truthful statements were made throughout this presentation. Unfortunately, I think this is a "bigger than me" topic that would only be able to be pushed forward to the state level with a whole community. I do think that better communication of what the students are learning, and what skills they are able to do needs to happen with parents, teachers, and communities. Very interesting topic!

I can not believe this presenter did not turn off his phone then went and answered his door during the presentation. Yikes! Unprofessional. I think he needed to reschedule the webinar. His thoughts were interesting but definitely futuristic.
