During the 2016-2017 school year, Boone County Schools reviewed the board policy for grading (08.221). A revision to the grading policy was enacted in May 2017 based on multiple meetings throughout the year to analyze and evaluate local, regional, and national data surrounding grading scales and their impact on student success.
The grading scale changes directly affect all students in grades 4-12. Details of the changes are listed below.
Boone County PREVIOUS Grading Scale:
● 94-100 = A
● Below 70 failing grade
Boone County Schools NEW Grading Scale Effective July 1, 2017:
● 90-100 = A
● 80-89 = B
● 70-79 = C
● Below 70 is “I” for INCOMPLETE until June 30 of the academic year. Students with an “I” will be provided support by the school to remediate learning to reach a 70. If the grade is still listed as an “I” after June 30, then it becomes a failing grade.
This new grading scale provides comparability of student achievement between Boone County Schools and that of many other districts across the nation.
