Question

Do you know of any system or district that is simultaneously giving
letter grades and using a standards-based report card? we use a
standards-based report card but are "forced" to give letter grades for
the purpose of high school applications to our public high school
system. We can not find a ways to accurately translate SB marks to
letter grades without compromising the integrity of our reporting
document and process. Any ideas on how to navigate this issue? Thank
you!

Many high schools in Maine do this and with the requirement for proficiency-based grading in
Oregon as of the 2013-14 school year there are examples in Oregon. I suggest you look at
the example from the Beaverton Health and Sciences High School on the Oregon Dept. of
Education website.
