On Grade standby
My last official day of class was Sunday, MAY 25th. According to the school policy, grades are supposed to be posted on or before the 5th of the following month. Most teachers are good about getting grades in the following week following the last day of class. Actually ALL my teachers have had a great track recorder, so I was surprised to not see a grade posted for my Philosophy class. I check online daily and hello, we are way past the date grades were supposed to be posted. Yesterday, I checked and yippee I see an entry. I scroll across the screen and am surprised to see a “RD” as a grade. What they heck is that? Naturally, I freaked out because that’s just my nature and at the time the only thing I could think “RD” stood for was “redo.” It seemed logical then, but SO silly now. I searched for a school online catalog (I’m so resourceful!) and come to find out that RD stands for “report delayed.” I could have told you that the report was delayed along time ago. Now I am on standby until the teacher post my grad to get my AA diploma. I remember in the beginning of the class he said his arm was in a cast (or something like that) and he was grateful for online classes, so maybe he still hasn’t recovered fully and that’s what is causing the delay.
