Grading Scale:

In January 2015, the North Carolina State Board of Education approved a standard 10-point grading scale to begin with the 2015-16 school year for all students in grades 9, 10, 11, and 12.  This scale will be applied for coursework beginning with the 2015-16 school year; grades from prior years will not be altered to fit the new scale.

Local school districts are required to follow the new scale at the high school level (grades 9-12), and they may use it in lower grades, if desired. WCPSS will also apply the 10-point scale for all students in grades 6, 7, and 8.  Under the new scale, grades and grade point average calculations (high school only) will be applied as follows:

  • A: 90-100 = 4.0
  • B: 80-89 = 3.0
  • C: 70-79 = 2.0
  • D: 60-69 = 1.0
  • F: < 59 = 0.0

These grades will be reported on the transcript as numeric grades, rather than letter grades as have been reported in prior years.


Upon returning to school after an absence students should present a note to the main office that includes:

  • Date(s) of Absence

  • Reason for Absence

  • Phone Number

  • Parent Signature

Students will be issued a slip from the office to show to their teachers.

All requests for educational trips must be approved at least three (3) days in advance.  Please complete the form below if you plan to take your child out of school for educational reasons.

Form for Approval for Educational trips:  1710 req for ex abs for educ reasons  (PDF file)

Make-Up Work:

  • All assignments including tests are due the day a student returns to class if absences are known in advance.

  • If a student is absent due to illness or an emergency, a student has one day for each day out (1-3 days absences) or two days for each day out (4+ days) to complete make-up work.

  • Email your student’s teachers for assignments. Please keep in mind that many teachers can only check their email before and after school

In addition to the grade scale change, new standards for quality points will take effect for students entering high school for the first time in the 2015-16 school year and thereafter.  This
