Starting in the fall of 2016, all Greenville County middle schools will institute a grading floor of 50, meaning a 50 will become the lowest grade a student can receive for an assignment, test or project. Some middle schools have already implemented this scale, while other schools are in progress.

We believe a grading floor provides a more accurate reflection of a student’s overall learning. 

A grade of 50 is a failing grade.  It’s simply using the upper end of the F range.  Students will still be required to make up failing work so they can learn the material.
