Newark Junior High Principal Belen Magers said sheltering students' self-esteem may lead to false hope.
"What I will advocate for is a system where we can communicate more effectively the true level of performance and ability of the student, whether he or she is a language learner or not," Magers said.
Ideally, she said, teachers would include narratives along with the grades, explaining why the student received a particular mark.
As district administrators -- including Bernard, Magers and Newark Memorial High School Principal Jeff Dixon -- continue to discuss a fair grading policy, Bernard reiterated that parents should not be misled to believe their students are doing fine if that is not the case.

NEWARK -- Five months after starting her post as head administrator at Newark Junior High School, Belen Magers is now the school's permanent principal.
Without much discussion, school board trustees at Tues-day night's board meeting unanimously appointed Magers, who had been serving as interim principal since November.
I was principal," Magers said about her first few months on the job.Nothing has changed since her appointment as permanent principal, she added.
"The work continues.It's not like I'm putting on a different hat," she said.
Magers was a vice principal in the New Haven school district for five years before becoming principal at Graham Elementary School in 1998.
Since joining Newark Junior High in November, the school has added three student groups, provided more lunchtime activities and is forming a parent organization, Magers said.
"Though (Magers) was interim principal, she's had a chance to show what she's made of at the junior high school."
Magers' appointment as permanent principal also comes after a controversial e-mail accidentally was sent to teachers last month.Magers wrote in the e-mail to Bernard that she had spoken to her "supporters" about the meeting to discuss qualities sought in a principal.The letter also made reference to the "other camp."
The words "supporters" and "other camp" were in quotation marks, Magers said, because she was quoting phrases used by other people.
While she was not trying to manipulate the principal-selection process, she said, she acknowledged that the perception may exist.
"That is a perception, and a perception is not necessarily true," she said.

Belen Magers Principal at Newark Junior High
Argus Online - More Local News, 26 Feb 2004 [cached]
Superintendent John Bernard, who e-mailed an invitation to staff members to a meeting today to discuss qualities they are seeking in a principal, accidentally included a correspondence from interim Principal Belen Magers.
In it, Magers admits to speaking to her "supporters" to make sure they attend the meeting and also makes reference to the "other camp."
"If you're a staff member and (Magers) didn't talk to you, I guess you're the 'other camp,'" said science teacher Fred Ilg, who resigned as principal last fall, citing displeasure over what he characterized as the dis-trict's "top-down" leadership style.
Magers did not return multiple phone calls made to her office Tuesday and Wednesday.
Some community members protested in the fall when Magers, former principal at Graham Elementary School, was named interim principal of the junior high without going through a formal hiring process.
