Colorado School District Drops Grade System

A Colorado school district is getting rid of traditional letter grades and grade levels, MyFOXColorado reported.

The new system lets students in the Adams County School District progress at their own pace, meaning students could graduate earlier, or later than fellow classmates, the station reported.

Students will be required to master 10 skill levels in order to graduate, according to MyFOXColorado.

An explanation of the new system will be included on transcripts for students applying to college.

School officials told the station the new system will focus on students' competence.
