At Taconic Hills we are thinking along these lines for June. It has the advantage of avoiding all the correction hassles created by SED's plan. Thankfully all of our local districts are the same size within reasonable limits. Another option being considered is pool grading at BOCES or wherever. Our principal will look into these options for us.

Subject: exam exchanges

Is your school "farming out" your exams for teachers in another district to score? I'm trying to get a feel for how many schools are doing this because my Principal insists that we do this. He says that "all districts will be doing this within a short time." We have cohorts of roughly 110 students and we are exchanging exams with 3 other schools that will be sending upward of THREE TIMES as many exams as we send out!

We have 4 math teachers, they have as many as 10. How is this right?

Please let me know what your school is doing, especially in June! Thanks in advance!!!!!
