A Message From Phil Grant and Gretchen Muller
After receiving a wide range of feedback, the LSUU Board determined Monday, May 18, that high school students in grades 9-11 may choose a numeric course score that contributes to their GPA as an alternative to grades of Pass, Pass with Distinction, Incomplete and No Record. The Pass, Pass with Distinction, Incomplete and No Record will continue to be the default unless we hear otherwise.
Many of our students and families are struggling, often silently, now more than ever. There is immense stress over lack of internet connectivity, job losses and financial hardship. The changes made to our grading practices have brought some relief to many of our students and families facing hardship. For those who choose the Pass, Pass with Distinction, Incomplete and No Record grading option, please be assured that similar changes are being adopted by high schools across Vermont and the nation. Due to the varied needs and environments of students and families, these grading changes are being recommended by leading educational organizations. These changes will in no way impede our student’s college admissions.
Since this pandemic began our number one goal has been to create a community of care, connection and compassion. We again thank you for your understanding, flexibility and patience as we all try our best to navigate this global pandemic.
Phil Grant, PA Principal
Gretchen Muller, SHS Principal
