What does your child's school consider an "A"? Is it 90 - 100?

My daughter is in 2nd grade this year, and this is the first year that she is being graded numerically. (Instead of "E" for Excellent). We had our first parent/teacher conference for the year today, and when I got her report card, found out that our school district considers an A to be 94 and above. I told the teacher it was ridiculous and she agreed! Isn't this going to put the kids in our district "behind" other districts that count an A as 90 - 100?

  • Hello...Is this district they consider an A+ to be "A" is 93-95...and an "A-" is 90-92....Kind of weird sometimes adjusting to the new grading system...

  • I could understand if there were different levels of an "A" like you stated, however it's just a straight "B" below 94.

  • I agree it does sound ridiculous and I am not sure how it will effect comparisons to other ISDs. Especially now that standerdized tests play such a big factor. As for our school an A is 90-100.

  • When I was a kid an A was 94-100. Seems reasonable to me.
