School Board Approves New Grading Scale
The Greenville County School Board has approved revising the district’s grading scale for grades 2 through 8 to a 10-point system so all GCS students operate under a consistent grading scale.
The recommendation comes after the State Board of Education, at the recommendation of the South Carolina Department of Education, voted to move to a 10-point grading scale for all Carnegie-unit bearing classes. The recommended change in grading policy will go into effect next school year.
The recommendation notes that since the State has not fully rolled out the scale for Carnegie credits, further policy developments to reflect additional state and local grading policy changes may be added prior to the 2016-2017 school year.
