Video Presentations
November 2015

Students from Jeffrey Leone's Video Production and Broadcasting class at Nashua High School South recently produced videos on a very important and timely topic for faculty and students:  the development of a new grading system based on students' learning progression and their ability to demonstrate mastery of subject content.  

Compentency-based grading will be implemented in our high schools beginning with the 2014-2015 school year, with full implementation District-wide beginning with the 2015-2016 school year.
