Wichita Public Schools to hold Q&A sessions about new grading system

WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

The Wichita Public School District will host Q&A sessions over the next four weeks for parents with questions or concerns about the Standard-Referenced Grading system implemented this school year. 

The system uses numbers 0 - 4 instead of letters. School officials said the system allows students to learn at a pace that better suits them and ensures fair grading. 

This year, the new system is required for kindergarten through fifth grade, but will be mandatory in all grades in the coming years. 

The district will hold four sessions on the following dates: 

  • August  28, 2019  

           6:30 p.m. -7:30 p.m.   
           Alvin E. Morris Administrative Center, 903 South Edgemoor
