Grading Scale/Standards Based Update

RATIONALE

This is an update providing a tentative template for report card formatting based on the new grading scale approved during the June meeting. JK-2 formats are attached. Grades 3-12 will be in the same format for reporting as in years past with the only change being the implementation of the approved 10-point scale. As observed, the standards-based reports for lower elementary are more informative and provide greater clarification of mastery of instructional content in LA/Math. This aligns with the ACPS comprehensive plan.
