Let me begin by saying how proud I am of how everyone has handled this crisis. It has been a challenge that everyone has accepted and made a way for learning to continue. I truly appreciate your efforts.
I want to share the plans for Chattooga County Schools as we continue to deal with the current crisis and not being able to return to school for instruction. Below is a summary of our academic plans and the return of items to the school.
Chattooga County Schools will operate on a “bonus point” grading system for the dates of March 16th-May 8th. For every 10% of completed assignments, students will receive one point to their final average. (For example: A student completing 50% will receive 5 bonus points, a student completing 10% will receive 1 bonus point, etc.)
No student grade will be negatively impacted for this grading period.
Beginning the week of May 11th, there will not be any new graded assignments for students. From
May 11th-May 29th students who are failing will have the opportunity to make up missed work and improve their averages. For students who have completed all the previous assignments, they can choose to continue their learning; as teachers will continue to post assignments and make paper packets available through May 25th. These assignments are not required.
Chattooga County Schools will begin collecting completed assignments Tuesday, April 21st and every Tuesday through May 12th (April 21st, April 28th, May 5th, and May 12th). At this time, students may also return library books or additional items that may belong to the school.
Chromebook collection schedule will be released later.
For additional information, please contact your school principal.
