North Carolina lawmakers consider bill that would change school grading scales

The North Carolina General Assembly is considering a bill that would change the grading scale used to grade state public schools.

House Bill 145 promotes a 15-point  grading scale. On Monday, the bill passed its first reading in the House, and has been referred to the Committee on Education K-12.

The bill would change the current grading scale to what follows:

A: 100 to 85 percent

B: 84 to 70 percent

C: 69 to 55 percent

D: 54 to 40 percent

F: Anything below 40 percent

If approved, the new grading scale would be implemented for the 2019-2020 school year. The full bill can be read by clicking here.
