Midterm Cancellation

posted Nov 26, 2018, 6:47 AM by Michael Farrell   [ updated Dec 17, 2018, 5:01 AM ]

Chesterfield County has unanimously decided to cancel midterm examinations for all students. Please refer to the message provided to all Chesterfield County families:

Central office school leadership team consulted with high school principals regarding the status of mid-term exams. While assessment and accountability certainly have a place in the teaching-and-learning process, they cannot replace the important role that engaging, authentic face-to-face classroom instruction that occurs on a daily basis.

As a group, high school principals supported the notion of canceling mid-term exams originally scheduled for December 2018 and subsequently rescheduled for January 2019. Having already missed about five days of instruction due to hurricanes, flooding and winter weather, the cancellation of exams will provide our outstanding teacher more time to teach the curriculum that we are required to teach. Regularly scheduled assessments and projects will help us assess progress in the classroom. Therefore 2018-19 mid-term exam assessments are canceled.

Not wanting to penalize a student for something they have no control over, if a student desires to take an exam in an effort to boost their first semester grade, they may opt to do so. Teachers will provide direction about how to opt into an exam.

Semester grades for students who do not opt to take an exam will be weighted at 50 percent for each quarter.

With this decision, Dec. 14-19 will be regular instructional days at our high schools. There will no longer will be early release on those days.

We understand that some high school seniors who were eligible for examexemptions had made plans to work, travel, etc. Seniors who would have been exempt and have made plans on those days will be marked with an excused absence with a parent’s note.  As with any absence, students are responsible for making up any missed work.

We appreciate your patience as we worked with Central Office staff to develop a plan that was in the best interest of our students’ academic progress.

David and Lisa poster

Theatre on the James presents David and Lisa by James Reach. In the play, David Clemens (played by senior Nick Whelen) has developed a irrational fear of being touched, so his mother (played by senior Bailey Clark) enrolls him in a school for mentally ill teens.  Through his interactions with psychiatrist Dr. Alan Swinford (played by senior Jake Lester), the other students, and specifically a schizophrenic girl named Lisa (played by Fiorenza LoPresti), David slowly begins to understand the cause of his own issues.  

Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, November 8-10 at 7pm.  Tickets are $7 and available at the door.
