For the 2019-2020 school year, Paoli Jr. Sr. High school made some adjustments to the grading scale. In the last school year, students’ grades transferred from one nine weeks to the next. This year, first nine-weeks will count as 40%, second nine-weeks will count as 40%, and final grades will count as 20% of a student’s overall grade for a semester.
“Last year’s grading scale put you in a position where if you did not do well first semester, you did not have a lot of ways to bring that grade up second semester. We hope that this new grading scale will help students still have a chance and give them another shot to improve in this scenario. We also hope it will help them keep a higher grade average,” said Assistant Principal Ed Wagner.
