District moves to 10-point grading scale

By on February 18, 2011

The Kaneland School Board on Monday voted 6-0 to approve a 10-point grading scale that will be administered to grades 6-12 for the 2011-12 school year.

Board Secretary List Wiet was absent from the meeting.

Kaneland currently operates a seven-point grading scale. A document from Erika Schlichter, director of educational services of schools, states the grade-point shift does not represent a lowering of standards in Kaneland, but rather the expectation of a greater level of rigor in curriculum and instructional practices, combined with consistent measurement of students’ mastery, and will result in grades that are more accurate and more informative.
