Harrisonville Middle School is home to 6-8th grades. Each grade level is divided up into two teams of students. Each student on a team has the same set of core class teachers.
We here at Harrisonville Middle School are moving toward Standards Based Grading and Assessment. By 2016 we will have all classes at HMS using this form of grading and testing. Currently we are doing SBGA in all math, ELA, science and social sudies classes. Spanish, FACS, Vocal music, Computer applications and the rest of the exploratory classes will be ready by 2016.
We will take a look at the rationale behind our decision to move to this form of testing during this meeting. In addition, individual teachers will explain how the system works in their classes and we will end our meeting with a question and answer session.
Please join us on October 9, 2014 from 6:30-7:30 p.m.
