- LCHS Grading Policy- SBDM policy 21.01 Grading policy was provided to the council. One of the school’s major deficiencies is our grading system. Currently, Math and Foreign Language are using Standards Based Grading in their classroom. Mr. Godbey wants all contents to implement a consistent policy. BJ Martin is going to research other schools SBDM policies on grading with SBG. The council suggested that the policy when written be common, general, not to specific and model-based.
- LCHS Dress Code-The current dress code was presented. The faculty addressed their concerns about the long fox tails that drag the floor and cause a disruption in the classroom. Mr. Godbey is going to speak with Johnathon Baker, the district’s attorney about a policy verbiage issue in the student handbook concerning these tails. The council would like for it to read that no Halloween costumes or accessories can be worn unless it is an approved school function.
