Waynesboro Schools Consider Grading Scale Change

Posted: Updated:

Waynesboro students and parents might be seeing some changes on report cards.

School leaders are considering a switch in the grading scale to a 10-point system from a six-point range. That means the lowest A would be a 90 percent, instead of a 94.

Students and parents are asked to complete online surveys for their input.

"Does it make a difference? Will we be more competitive for our students? So, we're just looking into it, and we've seen what other divisions have done. Many of the divisions around us are 10-point,” said Sue Wright, director of instruction for Waynesboro Public Schools.

Augusta County adopted this system this year.

As the feedback comes in, a committee will review it all and then make a recommendation to the school board for how to move forward next year.
