Oklahoma Senate Passes Changes in Grading System

KSCB News - April 24, 2013 5:56 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma Senate has approved a bill to change the A-F grading system for state public schools.

The Senate voted 31-13 on Tuesday for the bill that addresses some of the concerns raised by superintendents and educators over the new system that took effect last year.

Under the changes to the bill, a school’s grade will be based on a scale under which a grade between a 90 and 100 results in an A, instead of a grade-point average system. The bill also will allow schools to receive pluses or minuses, for example an A+ or B-, depending on their score.

Edmond Republican Sen. Clark Jolley says the bill also addresses a concern that schools were being penalized for not offering Advanced Placement classes.
