Dee-Mack for a 10 Point Scale
Dee-Mack’s 7 point grading scale puts its students at a competitive disadvantage to students in districts that use a 10 point scale. In fact, according to the National Center for Education Statistics, the majority of U.S. high schools use the 10 point scale, meaning Dee-Mack students face an uphill battle against the MAJORITY of high school students nationwide. The 7 point scale makes it more difficult for Dee-Mack students to be accepted into colleges, especially those in the Ivy League. We call on the Deer Creek- Mackinaw School Board to adopt the 10 point grading scale and to adapt the transcripts of current Dee-Mack students to reflect the 10 point scale.
