Grading Scale Information 

 

Why did Washington Local School change the grading scale?

The Board of Education of the Washington Local School District voted to adopt a 10-point grading scale with plusses and minuses at their meeting on May 21, 2014.  This vote was based on the research and recommendation of a committee of teachers and administrators.  The change is intended to allow Washington Local School students to compete on a more level playing field for scholarships and acceptance into highly selective programs.

When will the new grading scale go into effect?

The new grading scale will be effective with the start of the 2014-2015 school year.

Will the new grading scale be used by all students?

The new grading scale will only be used by students in grades 3-12.  Students enrolled in Kindergarten – second grade will continue to use a developmental scale for reporting student progress.

Will all previous grades earned be converted to the new grading scale with the start of the school year?

No.  All grades earned through July of 2014 will remain on the current seven-point grading scale.  Grades earned with the upcoming school year will use the new system.

Will honors and AP classes factor into the new grading practices?

The additional quality points assigned to honors will not change.  Honors receive an additional 0.5 quality points and AP classes receive an additional 1.0 quality point.
