WS/FCS Offers Final Grade Guidance

April 29, 2020 - As we continue to navigate this unprecedented school closure, we commit to offering the latest guidance from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.  Most recently the state helped outline guidance for final grades. Based on the guidance provided by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, below are the guidelines WS/FCS will follow for final grades for grades K -11:

Elementary- grades K-5

  • Narrative report cards listing your child’s strengths and areas of growth will be used for final grades. Numeric grade will not be issued.

Middle School- grades 6-8

  • Students will be given a Pass or Withdraw (PC19/WC19) and narratives will be entered in PowerSchool. A “withdraw” simply means that we do not have enough evidence to indicate mastery. Students taking a high school course will get grading that follows the high school grading guidelines.
