Fairgrade Petition for Virginia Beach City Schools

1,657 Signatures Goal: 5,000

We, the parents of students enrolled in the Virginia Beach City Public school system, petition the Virginia Beach School Board and Dr. James G. Merrill, Superintendent, to revise the current grading policy and adopt a 10 point scale as follows: 90-100= A=4.0 80-89= B=3.0 70-79= C=2.0 60-69= D=1.0 59-below= 0 Provide 1.0 point weight for each AP/IB class We believe these changes are necessary for the following reasons: - Fairfax County and Loudoun County, in Northern Virginia, have recently adopted the 10 point scale and now have an advantage over our students in competing for college admissions, honors programs, and merit scholarships. -At risk students will have an increased chance for success which will encourage them to stay in school and potentially lower drop out rates.
