A decision to eliminate letter grades in schools is expected to be revised after one school district received backlash from the community.
Windsor Locks moved away from the traditional A’s, B’s, and C’s, and adopted a new grading method.
The letters had been replaced with numbers for the grading system.
Four is the highest and zero is the lowest.
Since there are still five performance levels, many might be asking themselves what’s the difference.
The biggest difference is that only 4’s and 3’s are considered passing grades.
Anything lower won’t get students to the next step, which can be frustrating and confusing for students who may have had some C’s sprinkled in their report cards in the past.
At a meeting on Thursday night, parents and students complained to the Board of Education about the system.
The board listen and voted to start revising it.
