In June 2011, the School Board approved its new grading policy. The purpose of the grading policy was to establish fair and consistent standards for evaluating and reporting student achievement that are relevant for instructional purposes and understandable for students and parents. A grading policy was needed to balance autonomy with common standards so that grading practices are consistent across the district. Additionally, the grading policy aligns City Schools with national grading systems (letter grades on a 4.0 scale) that are recognized and used by colleges and universities.
