LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- If you have a student in Clark County School District, how they will be graded could change.
The CCSD Board of Trustees voted on several new grading policies during its meeting Thursday night. Under those policies, student's grades wouldn't be impacted by late or missing assignments, attendance or participation. Students also couldn't technically receive a grade lower than a 50%.
Instead, schools would follow this new grading scale:
- A = 90-100
- B = 80-89
- C = 70-79
- D = 60-69
- F = 50-59
Kindergarten Grade Scale
- 2 = Meets
- 1 = Approaches
Standards-Based Grade Scale
- 4 = Exceeds
- 3 = Meets
- 2 = Approaches
- 1 = Emergent
Students can also earn a "W" or "working on standards below grade level."
Trustees said the change is to ensure grades more accurately reflect students' knowledge and skills by minimizing the impact of non-academic factors.
