    Elementary students in Fairfax County won’t get traditional report cards next school year.

    According to the Washington Post, the school system will use a more-detailed review system. Instead of A's and B's, students will see their progress measured with numbers one through four.

    Students will be graded in several skill areas. For example, instead of just one grade in math, a student would get scores for more than one math-related subdivision.

    Fairfax County officials told the Washington Post this is a change of culture (for grading) and it's time for a new approach.
