Standards Based Grading comes to Kohala High

Destiny Souze, Reporter

Kohala High School has officially switched over to Standards Based Grading. Standards Based Grading is comprised of 4 grades, A – exceeds state standards, B – meets state standards, C – approaching towards state standards, and F – does not meet state standards. With this in place students are encouraged to take their learning into their own hands.

This system has been met with countless positive reviews, from teachers who have waited 12 years to seniors wishing they had this grading scale during their freshmen year. How do you feel about standards based grading? Be sure to let us know by voting in our poll!
