Where can you get 5 Fs and walk at graduation? Duval County

This is an e-mail a colleague sent me. I am not going to put
his name to it in fear of retaliation but I find him above reproach. Also if it
happened at my friends school it happened all across the district
One of
my former nonstudents, came to class less than 20% this semester, walked across
the stage this past Tues. He had F in every session of every class for the 5
academic classes he took this year, and he did grade recovery for all 5 credits
in the past 3 weeks so they put him in. (is it possible he cheated? gasp!) Only
problem is with all that GR his District GPA was still only 1.66, so I am
convinced at this point there is no criteria for being in a graduation ceremony
in this county.

 

Also we
were given District EOC result print outs for seniors on May 23rd. Today we
were given the same printout but many of the scores are different and lower, 5
of my student gains became statistical losses now. Problem is the tests were of
course scantron, and the results should have no possible way of changing
(unless someone is playing games?) My AP is “investigating”. I’m sure
we will never get to the bottom of this. Can we sink much lower?

Wow!
Well what do you think can we sink much lower?
