The new Coshocton High School retake policy limits the opportunity to retake unless students have a grade lower than fifty percent. There are pros and cons of this new retake policy.

Some students might say the new retake policy is setting the bar too high for students’ expectations. In addition, tests could prove to be inconvenient for students with busy schedules.

You could even have five different tests on the same day and not have enough time to study for all of them.

Without being given the opportunity to retake a test, the school community should expect grades to decrease.

However, the policy can ensure students stay responsible for their work.

Some teachers think the retake policy is advantageous for students to gain knowledge.

“Students should not rely on retake opportunities to not study due to a sport or job. Retakes should be allowed for the opportunity to gain knowledge and not to improve your grade,” said Ms. Boyd.

The retake policy can also be profitable in other ways.

Mr. Jones said “the retake policy is beneficial because it prepares students for college.”

The retake policy supports some freshmen and juniors as much as upperclassmen.

“It is good for freshmen to develop basic skills needed for success in higher classes” said Ms. McClurg, “it models college readiness for upperclassmen.”
