The Indiana State Board of Education released 2016 A-F school grades at its meeting today.
The grades come after many schools in the state saw dips in their ISTEP test scores for the second year in a row, but grades this year are based on more than just how many kids passed the test. For the first time, the state is giving equal weight to whether students improved from one year to the next in its grade calculations.
Here’s how state grades broke down this year:
- A: 501 schools, 23.6%
- B: 827 schools, 38.9%
- C: 482 schools, 22.7%
- D: 187 schools, 8.8%
- F: 130 schools, 6.1%
