School-Community Partnership Meeting, May 29

With the end of the year approaching, the Leadership Team of HVRHS is developing procedures to address some of the questions about how grades of NYP (Not Yet Proficient) will be handled at the conclusion of the school year.  As we embrace a standards-based instructional model, our grades must reflect the learning of students, and they should certify that the student has mastered course outcomes and standards. Therefore, additional efforts will be made to allow students to demonstrate their mastery of course material and skills, and the Leadership Team is coordinating these efforts. We will share these procedures in writing by Mid-Marking Period (May 21), and a Parent Partnership meeting is scheduled for May 29 at 6 PM to explain these procedures in more detail. The focus of that meeting will be "Preparing Graduates," so in addition to grading, we will be discussing several topics related to how we are developing young people for a world with evolving demands and priorities, thanks to technology and other social changes. We invite all parents to join us for this meeting, and an agenda for that event will be forthcoming.  

-Dr. Jose Martinez, Principal & Mr. Ian Strever, Asst. Principal
