Insurance Discounts

In a June 5th, 2008 School Board work session, FCPS Superintendent Jack Dale expressed concern about the challenge of a grading scale "serving many masters" including vehicle insurance discounts and sports eligibility.  

FAIRGRADE understands Dr. Dale's  concerns, and maintains that college admissions, merit scholarships and entrance into college Honors programs are the priority points in the debate over grading policies. 

However, FAIRGRADE does acknowledge that vehicle insurance discounts and athletic eligibility requirements are still practical, financial issues for many FCPS families.
