(Indianapolis, Ind.) – School accountability grades are on the rise in the Hoosier state.
The Indiana Department of Education released its 2016-17 A-F school accountability grades for school corporations on Wednesday.
Nearly 25 percent of schools improved one or more letter grade, with close to six percent improving their letter grade to an A. Overall, 62 percent of schools received an A or B.
“I am encouraged by the results of our current accountability grades as an indication of the great education Indiana students are receiving,” said Dr. Jennifer McCormick, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction “Our work, however, is not finished. As a Department we will continue to partner with stakeholders from the state level to the local community to ensure every school is successful and every student is academically prepared for the future.”
