TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The school year is almost over for students in Leon County.

With all of the changes that have come out of this semester, many are wondering what will grading look like?

Superintendent Rocky Hanna stressed from the beginning that teachers should be lenient when grading work.

While the future of how learning will happen in August is uncertain, LCS says teachers likely won't be so lenient with the grading.

That's because students will have more time to adjust to the changes, but also because most students proved they could handle it.

"Lower engagement rate than what they have," said Gillian Gregory, the assistant superintendent of LCS.

LCS is currently hosting meetings with parents to see what the biggest concerns are ahead of August.

The task force will present recommendations to the board on June 16.
