Standards-Based Grading (in Ankeny)

Ankeny Community School District

I live in the city of Ankeny, Iowa. So my kids will (most likely) be going to schools in the Ankeny Community School District (ACSD).

Ankeny’s a bit behind in implementing the Common Core curriculum and is trying to get everyone up to speed on Standards-Based Grading (SBG). There have been a lot of rumors going around and some mis-information on the topic. Understandably, some parents are concerned about how this will impact their students. ACSD recently published a blog post all about SBG, why we’re doing it, and the process of implementing it in Ankeny. Rather than drone on, I’ll refer you to their full post here. (I thought it was very well written.)
