CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – The West Virginia Board of Education has agreed to reduce the credits required to graduate from the state’s high schools from 24 to 22, allowing two fewer elective classes.
    
The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports that change will apply in the next school year.
    
The board on Wednesday also agreed to change high schools’ statewide grading scale starting July 1.
    
The current scale says 0-64 is F, 65-74 is D, 75-84 is C, 85-92 is B and 93-100 is A.
    
Under the revision, 90-100 will generate an A. Other ranges will also shift a few points lower.
    
Similar changes will affect 1.0 through 4.0 grade-point-average scales.
