SUBJECT

Change in Grade Reporting

RATIONALE

The Grading Report Card Committee is recommending moving from reporting grades every six weeks to reporting grades every nine weeks. This will also include interim reports sent home at the 4½ week interval.

 

In reviewing data from every division in the Commonwealth of Virginia, it was determined that only seven school divisions were still on six weeks grading periods. Two of those seven use both six weeks and nine weeks grade reporting. At least three of the divisions (Alleghany included) are considering moving to a nine weeks format.
