Amends GS 115C-83.15(d) to increase the weight of the school growth score in calculating the total school performance scores used to determine school performance grades. Establishes the school growth score and the school achievement score each account for 50% of the total school performance score (currently, the school achievement score accounts for 80% and the school growth score accounts for 20%). Modifies the grade scale as follows. Makes school performance scores of at least (1) 85 points (was, 90) equivalent to an A; (2) 70 points (was, 80) equivalent to a B; (3) 55 points (was, 70) equivalent a C; (4) 40 points (was, 60) equivalent to a D; and (5) less than 40 points (was, 60) equivalent to a F. Applies beginning with the 2019-20 school year.
