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.
