Grading Scale/Standards Revision for SY20-21

RATIONALE

This is an update providing a few revisions to our current report card formatting based on discussions from the ACPS Report Card/Grading Committee. Revisions to the JK-2 formats are below. Grades 3-12 will continue to remain the same. The committee would like to provide more detail to the assignments/grades by adding additional ranges in grades JK-2. This would increase a better clarification of student mastery and generally be more informative of overall progress. This aligns with the ACPS comprehensive plan.
