Va. high school restores Fs
West Potomac High School Principal Cliff Hardison announced Friday morning that he was reversing new grading policies that all but banished the letter F and allowed students caught cheating to retake tests rather than get zeroes.
The change comes after a public outcry among parents and teachers at the school, in the Alexandria section of Fairfax County. Instead of Fs, students in most cases received grades of "I" for "incomplete" in report cards mailed home last week. The cheating policy gave teachers the option of letting students retake tests. Both initiatives now have been rescinded.
