First, the good news.
More As, fewer Fs. That’s the biggest takeaway from the release of school A-F grades, and a trend we’ve seen the last few years. More than half (51 percent) of the state’s schools are now A schools, the highest number in the last few years.
With a new assessment and a new way to calculate A-F grades on the way, next years scores are expected to drop across the board. Right now, the State Board of Education and Department of Education have not established either entity.
