IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARENTS!
In July 2018, DPI communicated that all school districts were to change to a new grade scale type in the PowerSchool Gradebook. In January 2019, DPI discovered that there was an error in calculating grades due to a rounding issue and notified all affected school districts. Hoke County was one of the school districts affected. DPI projected that approximately 30% percent of students were impacted and that this impact is minimal of up to 2 percentage points.
Due to the calculation error, Hoke County School officials will be working to correct any grading calculation errors. Second quarter report cards were originally scheduled to go home on January 28th. Our intent is to release report cards with a two week delay; however, this timeline is subject to DPI’s response time. Schools will notify parents of the new release date once the corrections have been made.
