The District 200 Board of Education on Feb. 28, approved the elimination of OPRF's class ranking system.
School administrators had previously discussed doing away with the rankings, similar to other schools in the state and nationally that have done so.
The elimination at OPRF will affect only sophomores this year and will be phased in with remaining student body. Class ranking will no longer appear on transcripts but grade point averages will remain and continue to be highlighted.
