Grades

    Re: Report card ratings

    Call me old school, but I think E,S,N,and U clearly tell
    parents where their children stand concerning grades and
    progress. E=Excellent, S= Satisfactory, N= Needs improvement,
    but is progressing, and U= Unsatisfactory, progressing very
    slowly or not at all. I never had a parent not understand
    this grading method. IMHO, when we get to "fancy" with the
    grade labeling, we confuse parents.
