BrookeLynn Tremblay ‘17 – At 7:00 a.m. on October 19th, 2015, parent Karen Proia started a petition on change.org to recall the 90/10 policy here at Romeo High School. Only 22 hours later, the petition already has 387 supporters as of 10:32am on October 20th, only 113 people away from the goal of 500.

On Monday, an impromptu discussion regarding the grading policy took place to converse about the petition ending with an agreement that the board would in fact look into the policy to look at what could potentially be changed.

“Many of parents and teachers feel that this grading policy is setting up our kids for failure,” Proia said, “It’s hurting their GPA and the opportunity to get them into colleges they want and enabling them to get scholarships as well.”

The plan is to have it changed before the end of the first semester. The board is planning to look this over at the next meeting on Monday, October 26th at 7 p.m. at the RETC.

    I’m very proud of these kids speaking out on the 90/10. This affects them
    directly and their voices should be heard. The administration needs to fix the internal things before they do
    something so drastic to these kids. They are still learning & their brains are still developing. They don’t need this kind of stress. They need to teach them study skills & note taking to prepare them for college not treat them like they are in college. Please parents &
    students come to the next board
    meeting to help support this cause
