School Officials Fired For Lenient Grading

Associated Press

Two high school officials have lost their posts because they gave hundreds of students A’s for a class that had no teachers, no attendance and no work.

Some students signed up to take the Peer Assistance and Leadership course as many as four times a day.

Sunset High School Principal Michael Stiles and Dean of Instruction Zulema Ortiz were negligent in their grading policies, said Superintendent Chad Woolery.

Woolery said the school used the leadership class to fill students’ schedules because it did not offer enough elective courses.
