LIVINGSTON PARISH, La (FOX44) - One elementary school in Livingston Parish is changing the way they grade their students by opting to swap a failing score, for a higher one.
Teachers at Seventh Ward Elementary School in Denham Springs were sent this email, by Principal Stacey Milton.

It explains a new 'no zero' policy, which replaces a failing grade, with a 66-percent, the highest 'F' on any graded work.

Milton says it's just protecting students, from having one mistake wreck their average.
We asked Milton if she has any concern than replacing a student's true score with the higher one could make it easier for students to pass, when they shouldn't. She says she has no concern about that whatsoever.
