Gov. Hogan: Maryland Schools Considering Pass Or Fail Grade For 4th Quarter

March 27th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

WBAL reports Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and state education leaders are trying to figure out how to handle the remaining school year amid the COVID-19 outbreak. 

“I think they are going to try and continue the school year without the buildings being open for as many people as possible,” Hogan said. “They’re doing online learning. They’re getting laptops and iPads out to as many kids as possible.” 

Hogan says some other ideas for include giving students a failing or passing grade for the fourth quarter and using grades from the first three quarters, providing students with take-home school packets, and addressing rural broadband issues so education can happen remotely. 

Maryland public schools are now delayed an additional four weeks through April 24 after originally closing for two weeks.

    The only idea with a chance of acceptance is to pass everyone, which is not much of a departure from the existing policy.
