Chicago Public Schools has a new elementary promotion policy for students exiting grades three, six and eight.

CPS says the current policy is now outdated because Illinois has changed the format of the Illinois Standard Achievement Test, or ISAT.

The board of education still needs to approve the revised policy at its meeting next Wednesday.
