CALEDONIA- Last night parents spoke out in regard to a letter sent out by Caledonia’s High School principal, Bill Martin. From our previous article, the letter states that the school will be continuing “the practice of” requiring students to complete all final exams, etc., however these exams will be scored and applied to the student’s overall course grade ONLY if they have a positive impact. .
It further states that some courses will require students to complete a final unit assessment, and that these are not considered exams. .
In closing, the school’s “goal” is to create an “equitable opportunity” for all students and to encourage students to study and prepare for their finals, but to avoid having the exam become a punitive measure of their learning.
