North Carolina bill would change school performance grades
The North Carolina General Assembly is considering a bill that would adjust the grading scale used to grade the performance of state public schools.
House Bill 145, which promotes a 15-point grading scale, passed its first reading in the House on Monday and has been referred to the Committee on Education K-12.
The proposed bill would mean higher grades for lower scores by changing the grading scale as 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
