The symposium will feature Dr. Thomas Guskey, a Professor of Educational Psychology in the College of Education at the University of Kentucky.

This symposium will focus on how to develop new standards-based grading policies and practices that are better for ALL students, how to gain the support of parents, and how to avoid excessive work for teachers.
The session will begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 3:30 p.m.. Each participant will receive a copy of Dr. Guskey’s book, “Developing Standards-Based Report Cards.” This event includes a continental breakfast and an on-site lunch.
