School board approves different grading scale

During a short meeting, the Enid Public Schools Board of Education approved several contracts for next school year.

A new grading scale for first and second grades also will be implemented next year.

The new scale is E — excellent progress, S — satisfactory progress, NI — needs improvement and NS — not satisfactory.

According to school officials, a district goal is to be able to utilize PowerTeacher, a program used to record, print and save progress reports for all grade levels. The current grading system for first and second grades aren’t currently accepted in the program.

The current scale is E — excellent progress, S — satisfactory progress, N — needs improvement and U — unsatisfactory.

Grades three through 12 use an “A” through “F” grading scale.

In other business, the board approved:

• A contract with Providence Working Canines to provide random, unannounced drug search for EPS.

• A contract with Kim Shafer to provide family centered communication enrichment services for EPS hearing impaired students.
