Dear WMS Parents,
As we begin a new grading period, I wanted to share a small change we are making. We have moved to align our district grading scale 5-12, listed below. Although we have used the grading scale as we assessed this fall, our online grade calculator differed by several percentage points due to this change. Also, an A+ was appearing, when we don't have a "+" for that grade. In keeping with grade point averages, this issue has been updated and corrected moving forward. Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to let me know.
