Springfield District 186 High Schools have come to a consensus to officially change the way semester grades will be determined and calculated. Rather than using the current letter grade scale as a basis to calculate the semester grade, all high schools will be calculating the grade using a new, mathematically correct percentage system. The new system will work using the same four to one ratio, with both of the quarter grades accounting for 80% of the grade and the semester final accounting for 20% of the grade. The updated grading scale will not harm any students, in fact, it should generally benefit students, giving them a grade that more accurately represents what they deserve.
