School officials in Nashua are being asked to reconsider their decision to eliminate letter grades and instead use a pass or fail grading system for high school students during the final quarter of the academic year.
Last week, the Board of Education voted 7-2 to adopt a hybrid grading system that would issue a pass, fail or audit grade for all semester two and quarter four classes, which would allow teachers to offer labels of distinction. All grades for second semester courses at the high school level will not be compiled into students’ grade point averages, but may appear on individual transcripts.
