CHARLOTTE – Class requirements are changing for many Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools students. The change includes not holing failing students back more than one time in elementary school.

In middle school, health, physical education and an elective will be required to move on to high school. And starting with the class of 2013, students will need 24 credits instead of 28 to graduate from high school.

School leaders say the changes allow students to take more electives while completing core classes.
