The Indiana State Board of Education met Wednesday where the members approved placement of A-F school grades.
For the second year, they agreed to hold schools harmless. That means a school may not receive a letter grade lower than the grade received in the 2017-2018 or 2018-2019 school years.
The cancellation of the Spring 2020 administration of the statewide assessments directly impacted the ability to calculate A-F letter grades for the 2019-2020 school year. The Indiana Department of Education compared each school’s grade for the past previous school years and assigned the better grade received by the school among those three school years. Grades were based upon ILEARN proficiency and participation rates and growth in the Elementary and Middle Schools while High Schools were graded on ISTEP+ 10 proficiency and participation rates and growth based on those results. High Schools were also measured on a 2019 cohort for four-year graduate rate and college/career readiness rate, plus a 2018 cohort for five-year improvement score.
