Region 1 grading system called ‘despicable’



FALLS VILLAGE — A group of Region 1 parents and community members gathered Wednesday to vent their frustrations about the new grading system.

  1. I am trying hard to not jump on the bangwagon making fun of this illconceived grading system- but my student is suffering. My student is in jeopardy of not meeting graduation requirements. (Do these requirements still exist?) There is no one to turn to. Administrators, faculty, and Board of Education are indifferent to parent concerns. This is not funny.
