I would also like to inform you of a district policy when it comes to recording grades:
“A student who earns a failing grade on an assignment or examination will be given an opportunity within five school days to redo the assignment or retake the examination in order to earn up to the grade associated with minimally passing [a 70]. A student is entitled to only one opportunity to redo an assignment or retake an examination for which a failing grade has been earned.”
JUST ANNOUNCED! National Arts in Education Week: September 12–18, 2010
On July 26, 2010, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution declaring the week following the second Sunday in September as Arts in Education Week. While there are a number of established arts education-related recognitions already (such as Music in Our Schools Month or National Dance Week), this is the first congressional resolution to recognize all the disciplines: music, theater, visual arts, and dance.
Sponsored by Rep. Jackie Speiers (D-CA), the resolution states many important advocacy messages that the arts education field has been touting for years including:
“Whereas arts education, comprising a rich array of disciplines including dance, music, theater, media arts, literature, design, and visual arts, is a core academic subject and an essential element of a complete and balanced education for all students…Whereas arts education enables students to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, imagination and creativity, discipline, alternative ways to communicate, and express feelings and ideas, and cross-cultural understanding, which supports academic success across the curriculum as well as personal growth outside the classroom..."
