Grading Scale for 2016-17 School Year
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.
