The EHS Grading Policy

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

     The signers of this petition believe that the current grading scale decreases motivation in hardworking students and should be changed. The policy averages together letters instead of numbers, so having two B's and a 100 on a final in a semester long course would result in a B average for the class. Also, having a B is equivalent to having a 85 no matter what score the student received. The sudden change in policy is especially unjust for the rising juniors and seniors who will be sending their grades to colleges. The signers propose the current sophomores and juniors be 'grandfathered in' along with the current seniors concerning the previous grading policy.
