Uniform Grading Policy
In April 2016, the state legislature and the State Board of Education adopted a uniform grading system effective August 2016. The policy mandates a numerical grading scale for grades 1-12 and a process for weighting courses. If letter grades with no numerical averages are provided from a transferring school, the following conversion will apply:
The uniform grading scale is as follows:
F=59 and below
Each grade 60-100 has a different weight with Honors Courses being given an extra 0.5 weight and Advanced Placement Courses and Dual Credit given an extra 1.0 weight (see chart below). All Advanced courses, 8th grade Mastery Algebra I, and 8th grade Honors English I will be given honors weight.
