A student from Yuba City Unified School District in California says a new grading system, in which teachers are required to submit grades through an online system within seven days, is leaving educators with little time to help students before and after class. During a recent school board meeting, River Valley High School student Sumana Kondle said the system, which applies to sixth- through 12th-grade teachers, has led her biology teacher to opt for more multiple-choice testing. The district's superintendent, Nancy Aaberg, said the grading system is intended to improve communication with parents, and teachers who refuse to meet deadlines could face disciplinary action.
