Grading Scale Interpretation:
Harrison County Schools strives for excellence both inside and outside of the classroom. To encourage maximum effort from our students, we have programmed our Live Grades online grading system to no longer round decimal parts of grades when reporting overall averages.
We will use the literal interpretation of the state grading scale:
93 – 100 A
85 – 92.99 B
75 – 84.99 C
65 – 74.99 D
0 – 64.99 F
Harrison County Schools hopes to encourage constant communication between students and teachers in regards to grading, and will not interfere with the grading process. As always, teachers will have the final say concerning student grades.
