The Cumberland County Schools has been notified by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (DPI) that there is a statewide issue with calculated term grades. PowerSchool’s PowerTeacher Pro, the digital application for recording student grades, has caused errors in 109 school districts and 59 charter schools across North Carolina. At this time, we do not know to what extent our students have been affected; however, we are fervently working with DPI to find out which Cumberland County school students have been impacted by this grading error. Please know that we are committed to making certain that students’ grades accurately reflect the scores they have earned. We will share more information as it becomes available and will work with each school leader to correct any grading issues.
