• Brandywine School District Grading Scale, Grades 4-12
    (effective August 2013)
     
     The Brandywine School District is converting to a 10-point grading scale for students in grades 4-12, starting in the 2013-2014 school year.  The new scale will frame the grade system to match the achievement levels and expectations established by the Common Core State Standards, which are very challenging and based on college-readiness skills.  The change was recommended by the District’s Grade Reporting Committee and approved by the School Board.
