Three Denton County school districts are trying to find new superintendents this summer as the school year rapidly approaches. Aubrey, Little Elm and Pilot Point are among 42 Texas school districts with superintendent vacancies, according to TexasISD.com. The website is a source of school news for educators.
The Denton school district has made a controversial (or, as the school board called it: courageous and brave) move regarding grading policies to take effect next year. The new policy throws deadlines out the window by allowing students to turn in late work at any time and retake tests over and over. It also does away with the six-week grading periods, replacing them with nine-week periods.
