A school board in Iowa is considering eliminating the A, B, C, D, and F grade system in their 6th, 7th and 8th grades and replacing them with “standards-based reporting” which means that students would be rated “beginning, developing, secure or exceeds” in 10 to 12 objectives per subject.The school board has actually already proposed the change and the teachers seem to be in favor of the new grading system.  Most parents are opposed to the change and some are asking that both methods be used this fall rather than making a drastic change.
