|Grading scale, personnel approved|
The Concordia Parish School Board adopted a new grading scale and approved numerous personal matters during its regularly meeting last week.
The new grading scale for regular classes is as follows: (A) 100-93, (B) 92-85, (C) 84-75, (D) 74-67 and (F) 66-0
The new scale was adopted last fall by the Board of Secondary & Elementary Education, according to Dr. Paul Nelson, Director of Academic Affairs for the parish school system.
He said the new scale had to be placed in the board's policy for this school year.
"It made a major change for some districts, but didn't affect us that much," Nelson said. "The biggest difference is that the lowest passing grade is now 67 rather than the old 69."
In other business, the board took under advisement bids for special education bus, pest control, duplicating paper, excess vehicles and portable classroom, but approved a bid for propane service for Monterey, which was awarded to Herring Gas.
The second reading of the policies was approved for board minutes, tax and bond elections and sales, buildings and grounds security, student absences and excuses, and public conduct on school property.
