A proposed change to the grading system in the Clark County School District passed through the first vote held by trustees on Thursday. The Board of Trustees voted to approve a notice of intent to amend CCSD’s grading, part of the school district’s five-year strategic plan.Under the new policy, students wouldn’t receive a grade lower than 50% and there would be no deadlines for turning in late work. Students would also be allowed to retake tests and redo assignments. Some schools in CCSD are already using this policy, but the school district is looking at implementing the changes district-wide. The regulation is scheduled to return for another board vote on July 8. If approved, the changes would be introduced on a tiered schedule, according to the school district.
