NJ school district lowers passing grade

Posted: Updated:

BAYONNE, N.J. (AP) — Officials in a northern New Jersey school district have lowered the passing grade from 70 to 65.

It's part of a three-year pilot program for Bayonne's 9,600 students.

School official Rosalie Moran tells The Jersey Journal (http://bit.ly/PdBgf4 ) a committee examined other districts and found an effective grading policy should minimize failure and reward the positive efforts of students.

Moran says success leads to more success.
