March 1, 2018

WDIV reports that in the Michigan legislature, a bill “to develop an academic grading style A-F grading system” was recently approved by the state House of Representatives’ Education Reform Committee. The bill would put in place an Education Accountability Policy Commission to implement the grading system, which will focus on proficiency in academic growth, English language learner achievement, graduation rates, rates of participation in state assessments, and absenteeism.
