<i>I have read about the issue of weighted grades and I saw the last board of education meeting when members discussed and finally voted on this issue. Does this proposal mean that students who are not taking advanced classes are going to be denied opportunities to go to colleges and universities if they don't take the advanced placement classes?</i>

Implementation of a weighted grading system on high school transcripts won't deny students educational opportunities.

The school board approved a dual weighted/nonweighted system. The current grading system will remain in place for students who don't choose to take weighted courses.

"Each college/university sets its own admissions criteria and students will continue to be evaluated on an individual basis," Assistant Supt. Nettie Collins-Hart said.
