School Committee member Vimala Phongsavanh is introducing a proposal during tonight's meeting of the board to raise the threshold for a passing grade at Woonsocket High School from 60 to 70.
The change went into effect last year, which in essence would have aided about 30 Woonsocket High School Seniors in making graduation that year.
The committee will also discuss the district's attendance policy.
Check the attached agenda for a full list of items for tonight's meeting, 7 p.m. at the Woonsocket Middle School's Hamlet Building, 60 Florence Drive.
Editor's note: This article has been updated to reflect the effect of the lowered passing grade. While the change would have improved the graduation rate, the stated reason for the swtich was to align graduation requirements with those of RIDE.
