Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz maintains she does not intend to follow in her predecessor's footsteps and take over failing public schools.
The Indiana Department of Education has hosted school accountability meetings across the state with leaders of schools that earned a D or an F, and how to meet state and federal guidelines.
These are Northwest Indiana public school districts' A-F accountability grades for 2013.
The Indiana State Board of Education voted to replace the 1-4 grade point average type of scale for calculating school performance, on the A-F system, with a more sensible 100-point measure.
INDIANAPOLIS | The State Board of Education reluctantly approved the framework of a new A-F school grading system Wednesday to meet a legal deadline, but members insisted there remains much work to be done before the revised accountability model is ready to be used.
INDIANAPOLIS | Gov. Mike Pence makes it sound like the simplest thing in the world: "We grade our kids every day in the classroom; we can grade our schools every year."
INDIANAPOLIS | Seventeen Hoosier education and business leaders working together more than 50 hours in seven meetings over the past five weeks have crafted what may become the second generation of Indiana's school grading system.
INDIANAPOLIS | Gov. Mike Pence is insisting Indiana schools be graded for the 2012-13 school year, even though the state's grading system has proven to be easily manipulated and thousands of students had their standardized exams interrupted in April by computer errors.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Indiana Department of Education has confirmed former state Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Bennett improperly altered school accountability grades.
INDIANAPOLIS | Plans to reform the A-F grading system used to rate Indiana schools hit roadblocks in the House and Senate Monday, but the idea will likely be revived during the two months remaining in the legislative session.
INDIANAPOLIS | The Senate Education Committee approved legislation Wednesday that could end Indiana's A-F school grading system, permit some illegal immigrants to continue receiving in-state college tuition and give certain school corporations a say in whether new charter schools can open.
