It’s close to reports card time for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, Gaston County Schools and many regional private schools. Sometimes, parents find it can be a challenge to interpret their student’s progress on a report card. This school year, you may see some significant changes in your middle school and high school student‚Äôs report card.
In October 2014, the North Carolina State Board of Education approved A standard 10 point grading scale. This grading scale will go into effect during the 2015 to 2016 school year. This change means that high school students across North Carolina will be using the same grading system. Students will be in a more competitive position as they apply to in-state and out-of-state schools, as the majority of states use a 10 point grading system.
Under the new system, the grading and point scale is as follows for grades 3-12:
|A: 90-100 = 4.0||C: 70-79 = 2.0||F: < 59 = 0.0|
|B: 80-89 = 3.0||D: 60-69 = 1.0|
Grades aside, children and parents know best when something is not quite right. Reflect on the past 6 months to a year and determine if this has been an ongoing area of concern, or is it something new.
