The Milwaukee Public Schools system is overhauling its grading system by separating students' academic achievement from feedback related to their behavior and work habits. Instead of the traditional letter-grading system for kindergarten through eighth-grade, students will be graded AD for advanced, PR for proficient (the expectation for each grade), BA for basic and MI for minimal. Students' behavior will be assessed on a numerical scale of one to four. Grading for high-school students remains the same because of college-application systems.
