Whoa….slow down on telling us what is really happening in our schools…

Thanks to Lobbyist Kim for this update:

State Board of Education members will consider postponing the implementation of the final piece of the A-F grading system — the summary grades for schools and school districts.

The 2017-18 report cards will be the first time schools will receive an overall grade, made up of more than a dozen scores on things like academic progress, graduation rates, and K-3rd grade literacy.

Board member Kara Morgan says after pushback from educators, both lawmakers and state board are considering potential changes to the grading system, but those changes haven’t yet been determined.

“Certainly some changes will be made and it’s premature to put into place a composite score that’s going to be wrapping all those pieces together,” Morgan says.

The General Assembly would have to approve legislation to delay the implementation of the summative grades.

(Comment: We are told to pay no attention to the Achievement scores earned by our public schools.  Remember all 607 school districts earned a 1.55 GPA in 2016-2017.  Does this mean that they will lower the bar again so that everyone can win a trophy?)
