Beyond k-12 education, students' grades can impact their college acceptance and access to scholarships. In short: Grades are important. But how do we ensure that the grades we assign truly and equitably reflect our students' learning?

This book study will take a critical look at traditional grading practices that have led to disproportionately negative outcomes for some student groups, as well as at new practices that promote equity for all learners. Participants will finish up the study with an actionable plan for grading in the 2022-2023 school year.
