School board OKs grading policy


From school reports

Kemper County School District's board of education adopted a final grading policy and procedure for all students' last school year term based on guidance from the Mississippi Department of Education.

All Kemper County students will receive an End-of-Year grade based on: (a) the average of the student's first, second, and third nine-week grades; and (b) extra credit for online and offline assignments completed during the COVID-19 school closure.

"Our board adopted this policy to be fair to all students in our district because of the impact of the pandemic," said Hilute Hudson, superintendent of education. "Additionally, we wanted to make sure that we are rewarding students for their hard work by completing their instructional packets."

On a weekly basis, teachers, staff and administrators provide instructional packets to all Pre-K through 12 students either in a paper format or via the district's COVID-19 website at "Our teachers and students stay engaged through our distance learning program, which has allowed continuation of enrichment and learning," said Hudson.
