Summary:

"Aspire Benjamin Holt Middle School teacher explained that they are no longer allowed to give zero credit on assignments, students will receive 40% credit on assignments that are left completely blank. The only explanation he could provide was that it was, “just the direction they are moving in”.

The same day, the BHM Weekly Announcements email was sent out (attached below), reminding parents to monitor progress on PowerSchool. No mention of the change in grading criteria, nor the fact that grading is no longer accurately reflecting the student’s performance."
