A New Jersey School District has a plan to help more students pass their classes. But it's got nothing to do with studying.
Bayonne High School, in Hudson County, is lowering its passing from 70 to 65.
It's part of a pilot program in the district, designed to help more students succeed.
Students are torn over whether it's a good idea or not.
Passing grades are not set by the state of New Jersey. Each district sets its own, and the threshold varies across the Garden State. In some districts, it's as low as 60.
FOX's Christine Persichette has more details on the change in Bayonne in this video report.
