Class Rank Eliminated for District 207
By 5-2 vote, Maine Township High School District 207 school board ends ranking for students.
District 207 students will no longer have the ability to see how they rank among their peers, as reported by Triblocal.
On Monday, the Maine Township High School District 207 school board voted 5-2 to eliminate the class ranking system in 2013.
Last summer, by a 6-0 vote, the board eliminated class rank from transcripts and other documents, unless students or their parents decide to have it listed.
During that time the move came at the suggestion of Barbara Dill-Varga, the assistant superintendent for curriculum.
Dill-Varga estimated that nationally, at least half of all high schools had stopped listing class ranks on student transcripts. In the Chicago suburbs, New Trier High School District 203, Stevenson High School District 125, and Glenbrook High School District 225 have already made the move.
