New 10-Point Grading Scale

  • Memphis-Shelby County Schools (MSCS) has adopted a new 10-point grading scale for students starting this fall.

    During the June 28th Board meeting, the Shelby County School Board of Education approved revisions to Policy 5014 (grades Pre-K-5) and Policy 5015 (grades 6-12) to adopt a 10-point grading scale. The new grading scale, aligned with recent changes in Tennessee state law, will go into effect beginning with the 2022-23 school year.

    Below is a representation of the former MSCS grading scale and the newly adopted scale.
