Miami — At its regular meeting on Monday night, the Miami School Board discussed changing the formula for determining student rankings at Miami High School. Board members Paul Licano and Richard Mawson were absent.
Superintendent Sherry Dorathy explained the reasoning for the proposed change is to “give credit to the students who want to succeed more.” In a nutshell, the proposed new ranking system would reward students who excel at the most number of classes.
Board member Debbie Allen wanted to know if the high school staff had been involved with coming up with the new criteria, and was told by MHS principal Rob Bueche that there have been “informal discussions.”
The board then decided to table the item, and directed Dorathy and Bueche to get the staff better involved in the process. The proposed changes in the ranking system, if approved, would go into affect for the Class of 2015.For the complete article see the 09-11-2013 issue.
