Important Grading System Change
Ashe County School district is changing its grading system this year from a 7-point scale to a 10-point scale.
Under the old system, an A was 93 to 100. Now, a 90 and up is considered an A.
The 10-point scale puts North Carolina in alignment with schools in most of the country, as well as with most colleges and universities.
The new grading scale will only be applied to coursework starting this year. Grades from prior years will not be changed to fit the new scale.
The following grading scale shall be used for required and elective courses in grades 3 through 12:
