Support changing to 10 Pt Grading Scale for Rockbridge County Schools

Rockbridge County Fairgrade petition

In light of the compelling data and evidence presented by the parents regarding Rockbridge County restrictive 6/7 pt grading policies, we urge that the school board adopt a 10 pt weighted grading scale

Adopt a 10 point scale, defined as:

90 - 100 = A
80 - 89 = B
70 - 79 = C
60 - 69 = D
59 - below = F

We believe these changes will encourage RCHS students to take more challenging courses and enable them to better compete for college admissions, honors programs, and merit scholarships as well as allow them to be eligible for good student discounts and NCAA sports.   

Please include your County district such as Natural Bridge, Buffalo, Kerrs Creek, South River, Walkers Creek or City of Lexington


(URGENT DISCLAIMER) Please be aware that the "DONATION REQUEST" page that appears AFTER you click "submit" for your on-line signature and comment is NOT for FAIRGRADE for Rockbridge County Schools. It is from i-petition. You DO NOT need to make any donations. Simply close/exit this website and ignore the "continue to donation". Thank you for supporting the change to 10 Pt Grading Scale. FAIRGRADE is a parent group whose research has demonstrated that current RCHS grading policies put students at a disadvantage with respect to college admissions, merit scholarships, honors programs, NCAA athletic eligibility, and car insurance "good-driver" discounts.
