What is the grading scale here. In Virginia my dd had the A B C D and F. But when my dd bring home her report card here there is no letter grade its numbers. Do they start using the letter grade in middle or high school or is it always numbers?

SS is in Kinder and he gets a very weird report card.  There are several different things he's rated on and he can score a 1-4 with a 4 being exceeding in that area and a 3 being meeting that level.

 We are in Texas, the report cards have a number grade and signs for certain areas such as communication with others, being prepared with supplies, etc.

In kinder there's letters like E, S,etc. And checkmarks go by the skills they have mastered for that six weeks. In first and on its all numbers.

I grew up in Texas. They never did letter grades only numbers. Passing was anywhere from a 70 and up so essentially they had A's 90-100, B's 80-89, C's 70-79 and F's anything 69 and under. Some school districts may still may still have D's which would likely be 60-69 but ours voted to do away with D's to raise the bar of passing so to speak.

This! And I will add in some districts they do skill books for the younger kids (kinder-1st) and those kids get a number 1-4 they shows mastery of the subject. 1 being they need help 2 being they are working on grade level mastery 3 they have reached grade level mastery and 4 is thy have exceeded grade level mastery.

In my girls school there "grades" are "e", "s", "r", 1, 2, 3, and 4, things like that, I was very confused the first time I saw their report card.

That helps a bit. Thanks. Just not seeing the letters makes it a bit difficult to know how she's actually doing. I don't want her to get anything lower then a C. But when I look at it I don't know what would be considered a C.
My dad likes to know how she does and is rather give him letter grade then explain the numbers and what I guess they are.
Another weird thing in Virginia she got a report card 4 times a year. And progress reports in between those. But here it seems like everytime I turn around she's bringing home another report card.
