PALMYRA — During the May 8 School Board meeting, the board voted to make a uniform grading scale for all grade levels.
The scale changes raises questions on how the Fluvanna County High School transcripts will reflect the differences.
All FCHS transcripts used to be sent with a school profile that included the grading scale. This past year the guidance department redesigned the transcript to include the grading scale as part of the transcript itself.
Brenda Gilliam, director of secondary education, confirms the school will again redesign the transcript to include both the grading scale used since students started in high school and the new uniform scale.
Transcripts only display letter grades, not the final number.
The uniform grading scale is A: 90-10; B: 80-89; C: 70-79; D: 65-69; F: Below 65. It will apply to any class that has a number for a final grade. It will take effect for third grade through high school starting in August 2013. The School Board unanimously passed the new scale.
