It also provides “stem to stern” legal coverage to assist and enhance your current Human Resource Team’s efforts to provide a safe, secure, and positive work environment.

If your school or district is considering the transition from a traditional grading system to Standards Based or Aligned Grading, this is the workshop for you! In this practical "how to" workshop, we will briefly cover the research behind the standards based movement, but will spend most of our time tackling many of the major questions, challenges, and benefits to a standards based reporting system. This workshop will seek to address:
- The steps to be taken prior to making the decision to move to a Standards Based System.
- The pit falls that administrators, teachers, and parents face when moving to a Standards Based Reporting system and how to plan for them.
- A review of helpful text resources to assist administrators and teachers in understanding Standards Based Grading.
- A review of various formats districts can take for report cards and rubrics
- Providing districts guidance on "next steps" when they get back to district on how to pace out and plan to transition to Standards Based Grading.
