UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — School officials in Prince George’s County are planning a review of the school system’s grading policy.

The Washington Post reports that educators, parents and students plan to consider, among other changes, whether homework should be graded and if behavior should be factored in.

School board members discussed the impact of changing the district’s grading policies at a meeting on Thursday.

Classwork, homework and tests are used to calculate grades under the county’s current policy, with high school students graded during the year on a numerical scale from 0 to 100. The final grades are represented with letter grades.
