WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- The Waynesboro City School Board discussed changing the grading scale during Tuesday night's meeting.

The board is looking at changing to a ten-point grading scale from its current seven-point scale.

The main concern that some school board members have are that students would be rewarded for learning less content.

Others want to be compared fairly to surrounding counties, in particular when it comes to GPA and getting into college.

"My hard work that I put into it will be shown as As now. Having a 93 is shown as a B+ but having a 93 with a ten-point grading scale will be shown as an A. Working hard and studying all night long will be shown as an A now," said Waynesboro High School student Anna Fridley.

The Waynesboro City School Board voted to push back the decision to the next board meeting.
