IN State Superintendent Holds First Meetings with Educators

August 22, 2016

Early this week, State Superintendent Glenda Ritz held the first of a series of meetings with a group of 19 educators tapped to help examine how the state rates schools and make sure the A-F school grading system meets ESSA regulations. According to the Chalkbeat report, “the main areas that Indiana must add to its grading system are how to measure the progress and proficiency of English-learners and a school quality measure in elementary and middle schools. At the high school level, the state can use the AP and IB data, or it can add a different measure.” The next A-F committee meeting will be September 12th.
