Napoleon school board talks Personnel and Weighted Grades
Thursday, January 17, 2013
The topic of implementing a weighted grading scale was part of the discussion for the Napoleon school board of education this week. The proposal would add more weight to classes that are advanced placement; and obviously offer a tougher curriculum. That could lead to a grade point scale with a 5-point average for the AP classes. The Napoleon board will bring that issue back for more discussion at a future meeting.
In personnel action, the Napoleon board approved Chris Wenner as a full-time technology support technician. He is a Napoleon grad. Jeff Gillen was transferred to the position of head custodian at the high school; while Barb Long moves to the building and maintenance division. And Penny Conroy moves to the custodial staff at the middle school.
The Napoleon school board re-elected Larry Long as president for 2013; while Rob Rettig will serve as vice president. Long will also serve a two-year term on the FourCountyCareerCenter board of education. Regular meetings will remain the third Monday of each month; but will begin at .
And an executive session was held to discuss personnel, and possible purchase of land; but no action was taken.
