I'm being forced into this corner, and my sense of integrity is very offended.
I have to add that we were encouraged to give kids a grade in the beginning just for coming to a Zoom.
I'm not an ass - anytime I was aware that a kid had problems, I excused things left and right (example, not the kid's fault that internet reception at their home is so spotty that they can barely even talk on a cell phone). Our district had a no fault-no grade option that I've been employing for those kids, but I'm being told I have to essentially spin that grade for breathing into an A for the nine weeks. I feel that just repeating their 3rd nine weeks grade has more integrity to it. Raising a kid's average 70 points for breathing just makes me feel dirty.
I got a phone call this morning about "fixing" my grades. I know the law, and in part I am standing on that principle as much as I can, but no one cares about teachers right now.
I guess I want to know in an anonymour forum that maybe my issue and feelings aren't unique.
