Florida grading system
Florida's State Board of Education is considering making last-minute changes to the formula used to calculate school grades.
The panel is scheduled to vote today on a proposal from the education commissioner.
Each year the state hands out A-to-F grades that are used to reward top schools and sanction those that get failing marks.
But the commissioner has proposed a "temporary rule" that would limit a school grade from dropping more than one letter at a time.
The grades are based primarily on student performance on a series of high stakes tests.
