Under the plan, currently in committee, the school would move from a 0-100 grading system to an F-A system (whether to offer an A+ grade is under discussion). There would be no weighting for Honors/AP classes (under the existing plan honors grades are weighted by 1.05, AP grades are weighted by 1.10). Class rank would be eliminated.
