Grading Guidelines

In an effort to commit to all stakeholders, Baltimore County Public Schools are reviewing and revising its grading practices. The new grading practices will strive to provide equitable, accurate, specific, and timely information regarding student progress towards agreed-upon common course expectations as well as feedback for next steps and growth areas.

For additional information, please see the Grading and Reporting page on the Baltimore County Public Schools website. 



The primary purpose of grades is to communicate what students know and can do in relation to the course expectations.
