Weighted grading policy moves ahead in Colby

Deb Koncel was presented with a special board commodation Monday in honor of her years of service on the board. She will be moving out of the district and is not running for reelection in April. Board president Bill Tesmer presented her with the plaque.

By a 6-1 vote, Colby’s school board on Monday approved the first reading of a new weighted grade policy meant to encourage students to take more college-level classes without worrying as much about the impact on their grade-point average (GPA).
The proposal voted on Monday would change the way the district selects the top student in each graduating class to receive a state-sponsored scholarship.
That scholarship will still be awarded to the student with the highest GPA, but starting with the class of 2019, any course that earns post-secondary credit would allow a student to receive one additional grade point for these classes.
