Graduating in Jefferson City
The proposed minimum to pass a class would be lowered to 60%. That means what used to be a D- is now a D, and both would get you a passing grade under the new proposal. The district hopes this change will help combat its nearly 5% dropout rate.
The school board plans to meet Monday to talk about the possible grade scale changes. If passed, the proposed grade scale would not be implemented until next school year at the earliest.
