I’m a student at Decatur High School and will be going into my senior year in August, 2022. Like many students at DHS I am upset and frustrated about the changes being made by the superintendent and board to change how our tests are graded. We have all been using this system for the entirety of our time in Decatur, and the changes being made would negatively affect students and parents. The 1-8 scale allows for students to get grades that reflect their work in their classrooms and at home. The variability of the scale means that for students who score higher than a B but lower than an A, they still have the opportunity to get credit for that extra effort. Changing the scale to a 1-4 makes no sense, and appears to only be hurting the students, teachers, and parents in CSD.
