Standards Based Grading Parent Forum
A parent forum for elementary parents will be held at 7 pm, May 17 at Normal West High School. Parents will have the opportunity to hear about the Unit 5 plans for Standards Based Grading implementation and ask questions. Gerry Swan, a professor at the University of Kentucky, will be present to share information about Standards Based Grading and assist with questions. Gerry has researched Standards Based Grading extensively and has assisted school districts with implementation. The information from this forum will help to guide the information presentation that will be shared at all elementary schools in the fall of 2016. Space is limited, so we are asking parents to sign up using the form that is linked here to secure a spot.
Unit 5 Email Difficulties
Unit 5 email experienced intermittent outages, as well as voice mail issues, last week. Everything has been restored to working order. Unit 5 will begin a process to move away from our current email platform (Microsoft Exchange) and is instead moving to Gmail. This move is necessary due to the fact that the current Exchange/Version/Server is past its end-of-life and the performance issues continue to mount. The problems this week further reinforce our decision to make this change. The migration is set to begin summer 2016, and will be completed by August 2016. Thank you for patience as we work through these issues
