Question

We are using PowerSchool this year for the 1st time and coming up to
Midterms. We are to calculate their final semester grade only using
letter grades from previous quarters. For example, a person who
receives an 89% or an 81% will both receive B's, and be weighted the
same going into midterms. Is there any way to set up the grades to
only look at the letter grades to calculate the semester grade, rather
than the percentages?

I do not fully understand your question but I think it illustrates why we need to get rid of
percentages.
