The North Carolina General Assembly is considering changing the grading scale used in state public schools.

Right now, anything less than a 60-percent mark is a failing grade. The new scale would change that to anything less than 40 percent. 

The new scale would be:

  • A: 100 to 85 percent
  • B: 84 to 70 percent
  • C: 69 to 55 percent
  • D: 54 to 40 percent
  • F: Anything below 40 percent

School report cards from the 2017 school year have results for individual schools and counties. Wake County schools have just a 0.6 percent failure rate. Cumberland County has a 1.2 percent failure rate. Durham County has an 18 percent failure rate.
