letter grades


The McCracken County Board of Education is set to vote on implementing a new grading scale with more stringent requirements for 4.0 students. 

The current scale McCracken County schools use for awarding an “A” in grades K4-12 means scoring a 94 to 100.  


Marshall County Schools has eliminated letter grades at all six of its public elementary schools. The system is applying a standards-based grading system for the current school year. Instructional supervisor Abby Griffy tells The Paducah Sun all the county's elementary schools will assess student performance by describing levels of comprehension on what is being taught instead of assigning letters based on averaged grades.
