Montgomery County Public Schools revised the elementary school grading system last year. According to the MCPS website, "The revisions are designed to more clearly convey student learning and provide additional information about learning skills or work habits. The change reflects input from parents, school staff, and community." 
To summarize:
--Students in Grades 2-5 will have A, B, C, D grades.
--Kindergarten students will get a report card four times (instead of twice) per year.
--Includes overall subject grade (in addition to the end-of-year average and measurement topics per marking period).
--Includes reporting of key learning skills.
