The Grazing Ram: Why We Should Get Rid of Gradeless Classrooms

[Editor’s Note: This is the first installment of “The Grazing Ram,” a new opinion column by New Canaan High School sophomore Leo Mikkola-Patel.]

Breakdown of the Gradeless Classroom Grading System 

The gradeless classroom grading system is used in some English classrooms at New Canaan High School. This has been in place for a number of years.  Throughout the marking period, students complete assignments which are put into the gradebook. These assignments typically are marked as ‘complete’ and have feedback on them, but point values are not attached. During the marking period, teachers assess students on their performance, keeping note on specific categories such as work ethic, timeliness and quality of work. At the end of the marking period, students reflect on their performance throughout the quarter.

Police: Reports of School Bus Violations Up Steeply in 2022

New Canaan Police are seeing a steep rise this year in the number of reported violations of motorists passing stopped school buses. Police received 31 reports of school bus violations in October, compared to just four in the year-ago month, Chief Leon Krolikowski reported at the Nov. 16 meeting of the Police Commission. Through the first 10 months of 2022, police received 101 school bus violation reports, compared to 39 in the same period last year, according to the chief. 

“We have seen a huge increase in violations and in fact we are working with the [school district’s] transportation coordinator and the bus drivers to try to get them the information they need,” Krolikowski said during the Commission’s regular meeting, held at police headquarters. 

“Because sometimes incidents are reported but they can’t be enforced, because they don’t meet the criteria of the statute,” he said. Krolikowski added, “This is largely bus drivers reporting violations with the cameras on the buses.
