Davidson County Schools District-wide Grading Procedures
Posted on 08/19/2015

report card

Davidson County Schools has adopted new district-wide grading procedures which will begin with the 2015-2016 academic year.

The North Carolina State Board of Education recently mandated the use of a 10-point scale for all high schools across the state which will provide consistency for students moving within the state and also for families coming from, and going, out-of-state.  In order to maintain consistency in all grades, students in third through eighth grades (3-8) will be graded on a 10-point scale instead of the 7-point scale.  This change was made to maintain the grading alignment between elementary, middle, and high schools in Davidson County.

I
n addition to the grade scale change, new standards for quality points will take effect for the ninth graders in the fall of 2015-2016 and all students entering high school after that year.  This change will not affect students who will be in grades 10, 11 or 12 in 2015-2016.
