Starting this new school year, teachers took surveys and even though most of them were putting in grades regularly, they are now required to update student data no less than every two weeks. Science teacher Renee Haugen Said, “They wanted to give them more frequent chances to check up with their students and teachers if grades started to slip or are not put in.” 

With a trimester, not quite enough information for having grades updated at the quarter, halfway, three-quarter, and final marks for each grading period.  Also, parents want more communication specifically on how their student is doing in class. 

“If things are quiet, that’s probably an okay thing,” said Vice Principal, Valerie Nebo. Given it’s only been a couple of weeks into school, they can’t tell on how consistent the teachers are, but overall our teachers are pretty good about keeping grades updated. 

 The roll Ms. Nebo is in right now, it’s helpful for her because she doesn’t get as many opportunities to say, “I don’t know what’s going on” because there are more of these benchmarks.  Mainly the reason for this was to keep parents updated with there students at Livermore High School.
