Brimfield Community Unified School District No. 309 Board of Education met Tuesday, Oct. 11.
Here is the agenda as provided by Brimfield Community Unified School District 309:
October 11, 2016
The Curriculum Committee of the Brimfield Board of Education met on Tuesday, October 11, 2016 in the High School Library. At 5:21 p.m. the meeting was called to order with the following present: Heinz, Johnson, Garls, Ross, Richardson and Blane. At 5:45 Moon arrived.
The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the final exam guidelines and exemptions.
The committee agreed that there will be no early testing.
Illinois Virtual School and Dual Credit courses will not apply towards the total number of exams a student must take.
Students must take a final exam in a class, if the student has a failing grade.
Students will not be allowed to switch classes once they indicate they are taking a final in a specific class.
It was the committee’s consensus to adopt the newest version of the senior exemptions for 1st semester with less criteria, but clarity and defined dates.
The committee added 2nd semester to tardies – it is currently written for each semester, but the committee discussed changing to 2nd semester only to provide an opportunity for students to renew at the semester break.
At 6:27 p.m. the committee adjourned.
Dan Heinz, President
John Moon, Secretary
