ABC grading going away at PBC schools?

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A possible overhaul for the school grading system in Palm Beach County. The district is considering a major change.

Instead of letter grades on your child's report cards, you could see performance evaluations like these: 'exemplary', 'proficient' or 'needs development'.

The new guidelines are meant to more accurately reflect a student's understanding of the coursework.

Thirteen elementary schools in the county are participating in a pilot program, and the new system could make its way to more schools next year.
